Subject[patch] fix hugepage unuseable issu on non-NUMA machine
73d60b7f747176dbdff826c4127d22e1fd3f9f74 commit introduced a nodes_clear
function for NUMA machine. But seems the commit omits non-NUMA machine.
If find_zone_movable_pfns_for_nodes/early_calculate_totalpages has no
chance to run. nodes_clear will block HUPEPAGE using in my specjbb2005

So maybe we need to disable nodes_clear sometimes. With the following
patch. specjbb2005 recovered.
