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.
