SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/9] mm, hugetlb: fix and clean-up node iteration code to alloc or free

Can you explain the problem in a bit more detail

I found the existing code more readable. Obviously I haven't yet figured
out the problem you have observed with the code.

This check for nodes_weight and fail right ? (nr_nodes == 0). That is
not the case with the existing code. It will allocate from
h->next_nid_to_alloc. Is that ok ?
