See device_add(), it looks to the device's parent and on NO_NODE, puts
it there.

Lacking any hints, just stick it to node0 and print a FW_BUG or
something.

Well, dev_to_node() doesn't do anything; nor should it. It are the
callers of set_dev_node() that should be taking care.

Also note how device_add() sets the device node to the parent device's
node on NUMA_NO_NODE. Arguably we should change it to complain when it
finds NUMA_NO_NODE and !parent.
