mem-hotplug: don't clear the only node in new_node_page()
Commit 394e31d ("mem-hotplug: alloc new page from a nearest neighbor node when mem-offline") introduced new_node_page() for memory hotplug. In new_node_page(), the nid is cleared before calling __alloc_pages_nodemask(). But if it is the only node of the system, and the first round allocation fails, it will not be able to get memory from an empty nodemask, and will trigger oom. The patch checks whether it is the last node on the system, and if it is, then don't clear the nid in the nodemask.
