Subject: [PATCH V5 1/2] pseries/nodes: Ensure enough nodes avail for
 operations

pseries/nodes: On pseries systems which allow 'hot-add' of CPU or
memory resources, it may occur that the new resources are to be
inserted into nodes that were not used for these resources at bootup.
In the kernel, any node that is used must be defined and initialized.
This patch ensures that sufficient nodes are defined to support
configuration requirements after boot, as well as at boot.

This patch extracts the value of the lowest domain level (number
of allocable resources) from the device tree property
"ibm,max-associativity-domains" to use as the maximum number of nodes
to setup as possibly available in the system.  This new setting will
override the instruction,

    nodes_and(node_possible_map, node_possible_map, node_online_map);

presently seen in the function arch/powerpc/mm/numa.c:initmem_init().

If the property is not present at boot, no operation will be performed
to define or enable additional nodes.
