Subject: [PATCH 01/10] mm: control memory placement by nodemask for two tier main memory

When running applications on the machine with NVDIMM as NUMA node, the
memory allocation may end up on NVDIMM node.  This may result in silent
performance degradation and regression due to the difference of hardware
property.

DRAM first should be obeyed to prevent from surprising regression.  Any
non-DRAM nodes should be excluded from default allocation.  Use nodemask
to control the memory placement.  Introduce def_alloc_nodemask which has
DRAM nodes set only.  Any non-DRAM allocation should be specified by
NUMA policy explicitly.

In the future we may be able to extract the memory charasteristics from
HMAT or other source to build up the default allocation nodemask.
However, just distinguish DRAM and PMEM (non-DRAM) nodes by SRAT flag
for the time being.
