Subject: [PATCH v3 1/5] mm: add numa node symlink for memory section in sysfs

Commit c04fc586c (mm: show node to memory section relationship with
symlinks in sysfs) created symlinks from nodes to memory sections, e.g.

/sys/devices/system/node/node1/memory135 -> ../../memory/memory135

If you're examining the memory section though and are wondering what
node it might belong to, you can find it by grovelling around in
sysfs, but it's a little cumbersome.

Add a reverse symlink for each memory section that points back to the
node to which it belongs.
