Subject: Re: [PATCH] mm: Remove VM_BUG_ON in __alloc_pages_node

IMO the reason why a lot of failures must not have occured in the past
might be because the programs which use it use stuff like cpu_to_node or
have checks for nid.
If one day we do get a program which passes an invalid node id without
VM_BUG_ON enabled, it might get weird.
