NUMA_NO_NODE := -1, which is not a valid node number. It is also, like I
said, not a valid device location on a NUMA system.

Just because ACPI/BIOS is shit, doesn't mean the device doesn't have a
node association. It just means we don't know and might have to guess.

The one true way is:

	'(unsigned)node_id >= nr_node_ids'

It is not a matter of convenience. The function is called
cpumask_of_node(), when node < 0 || node >= nr_node_ids, it is not a
valid node, therefore the function shouldn't return anything except an
error.

Also note that the CONFIG_DEBUG_PER_CPU_MAPS version of
cpumask_of_node() already does this (although it wants the below fix).
