[PATCH] mm: disallow early_pfn_to_nid on configurations which do not implement it

From: Michal Hocko

early_pfn_to_nid will return node 0 if both HAVE_ARCH_EARLY_PFN_TO_NID
and HAVE_MEMBLOCK_NODE_MAP are disabled. It seems we are safe now
because all architectures which support NUMA define one of them (with an
exception of alpha which however has CONFIG_NUMA marked as broken) so
this works as expected. It can get silently and subtly broken too
easily, though. Make sure we fail the compilation if NUMA is enabled and
there is no proper implementation for this function. If that ever
happens we know that either the specific configuration is invalid
and the fix should either disable NUMA or enable one of the above

I have brought this up earlier [1] because I thought the deferred
initialization might be broken but then found out that this is not the
case right now. This is an attempt to prevent any subtly broken users in
