slab: fix nodeid bounds check for non-contiguous node IDs
The bounds check for nodeid in ____cache_alloc_node gives false positives on machines where the node IDs are not contiguous, leading to a panic at boot time. For example, on a POWER8 machine the node IDs are typically 0, 1, 16 and 17. This means that num_online_nodes() returns 4, so when ____cache_alloc_node is called with nodeid = 16 the VM_BUG_ON triggers, like this: kernel BUG at /home/paulus/kernel/kvm/mm/slab.c:3079! Call Trace: .____cache_alloc_node+0x5c/0x270 (unreliable) .kmem_cache_alloc_node_trace+0xdc/0x360 .init_list+0x3c/0x128 .kmem_cache_init+0x1dc/0x258 .start_kernel+0x2a0/0x568 start_here_common+0x20/0xa8 To fix this, we instead compare the nodeid with MAX_NUMNODES, and additionally make sure it isn't negative (since nodeid is an int). The check is there mainly to protect the array dereference in the get_node() call in the next line, and the array being dereferenced is of size MAX_NUMNODES. If the nodeid is in range but invalid (for example if the node is off-line), the BUG_ON in the next line will catch that.
