Subject[039/127] x86: AMD Northbridge: Verify NBs node is online
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Prarit Bhargava <prarit@redhat.com>

commit 303fc0870f8fbfabe260c5c32b18e53458d597ea upstream.

Fix panic seen on some IBM and HP systems on 2.6.32-rc6:

BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)

I put in a printk and commented out the set_dev_node()
call when and got this output:

quirk_amd_nb_node: current numa_node = 0x0, would set to val & 7 = 0x0
quirk_amd_nb_node: current numa_node = 0x0, would set to val & 7 = 0x1
quirk_amd_nb_node: current numa_node = 0x0, would set to val & 7 = 0x2
quirk_amd_nb_node: current numa_node = 0x0, would set to val & 7 = 0x3

I.e. the issue appears to be that the HW has set val to a valid
value, however, the system is only configured for a single
node -- 0, the others are offline.

Check to see if the node is actually online before setting
the numa node for an AMD northbridge in quirk_amd_nb_node().
