This is a PowerPC platform with following NUMA topology:

available: 2 nodes (0-1)
node 0 cpus:
node 0 size: 0 MB
node 0 free: 0 MB
node 1 cpus: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31
node 1 size: 35247 MB
node 1 free: 30907 MB
node distances:
node   0   1
  0:  10  40
  1:  40  10

possible numa nodes: 0-31

This only happens with a mmotm patch "mm/memcontrol.c: allocate shrinker_map on
appropriate NUMA node" [2] which effectively calls kmalloc_node for each
possible node. SLUB however only allocates kmem_cache_node on online
N_NORMAL_MEMORY nodes, and relies on node_to_mem_node to return such valid node
for other nodes since commit a561ce00b09e ("slub: fall back to
node_to_mem_node() node if allocating on memoryless node"). This is however not
true in this configuration where the _node_numa_mem_ array is not initialized
for nodes 0 and 2-31, thus it contains zeroes and get_partial() ends up
accessing non-allocated kmem_cache_node.

A related issue was reported by Bharata (originally by Ramachandran) [3] where
a similar PowerPC configuration, but with mainline kernel without patch [2]
ends up allocating large amounts of pages by kmalloc-1k kmalloc-512. This seems
to have the same underlying issue with node_to_mem_node() not behaving as
expected, and might probably also lead to an infinite loop with
CONFIG_SLUB_CPU_PARTIAL [4].

This patch should fix both issues by not relying on node_to_mem_node() anymore
and instead simply falling back to NUMA_NO_NODE, when kmalloc_node(node) is
attempted for a node that's not online, or has no usable memory. The "usable
memory" condition is also changed from node_present_pages() to N_NORMAL_MEMORY
node state, as that is exactly the condition that SLUB uses to allocate
kmem_cache_node structures. The check in get_partial() is removed completely,
as the checks in ___slab_alloc() are now sufficient to prevent get_partial()
being reached with an invalid node.
