Subject[057/103] x86, numa: For each node, register the memory blocks actually used
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@kernel.org>

commit 73cf624d029d776a33d0a80c695485b3f9b36231 upstream.

Russ reported SGI UV is broken recently. He said:

| The SRAT table shows that memory range is spread over two nodes.
|
| SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 100000000-800000000
| SRAT: Node 1 PXM 1 800000000-1000000000
| SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 1000000000-1080000000
|
|Previously, the kernel early_node_map[] would show three entries
|with the proper node.
|
|[ 0.000000] 0: 0x00100000 -> 0x00800000
|[ 0.000000] 1: 0x00800000 -> 0x01000000
|[ 0.000000] 0: 0x01000000 -> 0x01080000
|
|The problem is recent community kernel early_node_map[] shows
|only two entries with the node 0 entry overlapping the node 1
|entry.
|
| 0: 0x00100000 -> 0x01080000
| 1: 0x00800000 -> 0x01000000

After looking at the changelog, Found out that it has been broken for a while by
following commit

|commit 8716273caef7f55f39fe4fc6c69c5f9f197f41f1
|Author: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com>

| x86: Export srat physical topology

Before that commit, register_active_regions() is called for every SRAT memory
entry right away.

Use nodememblk_range[] instead of nodes[] in order to make sure we
capture the actual memory blocks registered with each node. nodes[]
contains an extended range which spans all memory regions associated
with a node, but that does not mean that all the memory in between are
included.
