mm: fix handling of pagesets for downed cpus
After downing/upping a cpu, an attempt to set /proc/sys/vm/percpu_pagelist_fraction results in an oops in percpu_pagelist_fraction_sysctl_handler(). If a processor is downed then we need to set the pageset pointer back to the boot pageset. Updates of the high water marks should not access pagesets of unpopulated zones (those pointer go to the boot pagesets which would be no longer functional if their size would be increased beyond zero).
