Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] Offline memoryless cpuless node 0

Changelog v2:->v3:
- Resolved comments from Gautham.
Link v2: https://lore.kernel.org/linuxppc-dev/20200428093836.27190-1-srikar@linux.vnet.ibm.com/t/#u

Changelog v1:->v2:
- Rebased to v5.7-rc3
- Updated the changelog.
Link v1: https://lore.kernel.org/linuxppc-dev/20200311110237.5731-1-srikar@linux.vnet.ibm.com/t/#u

Linux kernel configured with CONFIG_NUMA on a system with multiple
possible nodes, marks node 0 as online at boot. However in practice,
there are systems which have node 0 as memoryless and cpuless.

This can cause
1. numa_balancing to be enabled on systems with only one online node.
2. Existence of dummy (cpuless and memoryless) node which can confuse
users/scripts looking at output of lscpu / numactl.

This patchset wants to correct this anomaly.

This should only affect systems that have CONFIG_MEMORYLESS_NODES.
Currently there are only 2 architectures ia64 and powerpc that have this
config.

Note: Patch 3 in this patch series depends on patches 1 and 2.
Without patches 1 and 2, patch 3 might crash powerpc.

Srikar Dronamraju (3):
  powerpc/numa: Set numa_node for all possible cpus
  powerpc/numa: Prefer node id queried from vphn
  mm/page_alloc: Keep memoryless cpuless node 0 offline
