Subject: [PATCH] mm: Remove VM_BUG_ON in __alloc_pages_node

In __alloc_pages_node, there is a VM_BUG_ON on the condition (nid < 0 ||
nid >= MAX_NUMNODES). Remove this VM_BUG_ON and add a VM_WARN_ON, if the
condition fails and fail the allocation if an invalid NUMA node id is
passed to __alloc_pages_node.

The check (nid < 0 || nid >= MAX_NUMNODES) also considers NUMA_NO_NODE
as an invalid nid, but the caller of __alloc_pages_node is assumed to
have checked for the case where nid == NUMA_NO_NODE.
