Yes. It is kind of stupid but I once got a board on which node0 has no DDR
though node1 and node3 have memory.

I actually prefer we get cma size of per node by:
cma size of one node = hugetlb_cma/ (nodes with memory)
rather than:
cma size of one node = hugetlb_cma/ (all online nodes)

but unfortunately, or the N_MEMORY infrastructures are not ready yet. I mean:

for_each_node_state(nid, N_MEMORY) {
		int res;

		size = min(per_node, hugetlb_cma_size - reserved);
		size = round_up(size, PAGE_SIZE << order);

		res = cma_declare_contiguous_nid(0, size, 0, PAGE_SIZE << order,
						 0, false, "hugetlb",
						 &hugetlb_cma[nid], nid);
		...
	}

Yep. that would be more readable.
