mm, hotplug: fix error handling in mem_online_node()
The error handling in mem_online_node() is incorrect: hotadd_new_pgdat() returns NULL if the new pgdat could not have been allocated and a pointer to it otherwise. mem_online_node() should fail if hotadd_new_pgdat() fails, not the inverse. This fixes an issue when memoryless nodes are not onlined and their sysfs interface is not registered when their first cpu is brought up. The bug was introduced by commit cf23422b9d76 ("cpu/mem hotplug: enable CPUs online before local memory online") iow v2.6.35.
