Isn't that a plain bug? Is something like that really happening?

__GFP_THISNODE is a very specific situation when the caller knows which
node should be used for the allocation. NUMA_NO_NODE && __GFP_THISNODE
is a bug and I would dare to call it an undefined behavior.

No. Please read the above paragraph again. NUMA_NO_NODE really means no
node affinity. So all cpus should be usable. Making any assumptions
about a local context is just wrong.
