Subject[PATCH] x86: fix system without memory on node0

Jack found that crash with doesn't have memory on node0.

it turns out with per_cpu changeset, node_number for BSP will be alway 0,
and it is consistent to cpu_to_node() that is to near node already.
aka when numa_set_node() for node0 is called early before per_cpu area is
setup

try to set the node_number for boot cpu, after we get per_cpu area setup.

[ Impact: fix crashing on memoryless node 0]
