mm: build_zonelists(): move clear node_load[] to __build_all_zonelists()
If node_load[] is cleared everytime build_zonelists() is called,node_load[] will have no help to find the next node that should appear in the given node's fallback list. Because of the bug, zonelist's node_order is not calculated as expected. This bug affects on big machine, which has asynmetric node distance. [synmetric NUMA's node distance] 0 1 2 0 10 12 12 1 12 10 12 2 12 12 10 [asynmetric NUMA's node distance] 0 1 2 0 10 12 20 1 12 10 14 2 20 14 10 This (my bug) is very old but no one has reported this for a long time. Maybe because the number of asynmetric NUMA is very small and they use cpuset for customizing node memory allocation fallback.
