What I mean is, if we disable the NUMA from BIOS, but we did not change
the PXM for the PCI devices, so the PCI devices can still get a numa
node id from acpi_get_node(). For example, we can still get the numa
node id = 1 in this case from acpi_get_node(), but the numa_nodes_parsed
is empty, which means the node id 1 is invalid. We should add a
validation for the node id when setting the root bus node id.

I did not treate NUMA_NO_NODE as a valid node, I just add a validation
to validate if it is a valid node before setting. See my previous comments,
hopes I make things clear. Thanks.
