It is necessary to know if nodes have memory since we have recently begun to
add support for memoryless nodes.  For that purpose we introduce a two new

A node has its bit in N_HIGH_MEMORY set if it has any memory regardless of the
type of mmemory.  If a node has memory then it has at least one zone defined
in its pgdat structure that is located in the pgdat itself.

A node has its bit in N_NORMAL_MEMORY set if it has a lower zone than
ZONE_HIGHMEM.  This means it is possible to allocate memory that is not
subject to kmap.

N_HIGH_MEMORY and N_NORMAL_MEMORY can then be used in various places to insure
that we do the right thing when we encounter a memoryless node.
