Subject[2.6.20][PATCH] fix mempolicy error check on a system with memory-less-node
current mempolicy just checks whether a node is online or not.
If there is memory-less-node, mempolicy's target node can be
invalid.
This patch adds a check whether a node has memory or not.

This is an back-trace in which a program uses MPOL_MBIND just includes
memory-less-node.

==
This panic(hang) was found by a numa test-set on a system with 3 nodes, where
node(2) was memory-less-node.
This means an access to NULL,here.
==
unsigned slab_node(struct mempolicy *policy)
{
case MPOL_BIND:
/*
* Follow bind policy behavior and start allocation at the
* first node.
*/
return zone_to_nid(policy->v.zonelist->zones[0]);
}
==
length of this zonelist was 0.
It seems fixing a NULL access here is also O.K.
This patch is just an idea.
