numa: fix slab_node(MPOL_BIND)
Eric Dumazet [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 17:33:43 +0000 (19:33 +0200)]
When a node contains only HighMem memory, slab_node(MPOL_BIND)
dereferences a NULL pointer.

[ This code seems to go back all the way to commit 19770b32609b: "mm:
  filter based on a nodemask as well as a gfp_mask".  Which was back in
  April 2008, and it got merged into 2.6.26.  - Linus ]
