mm: fix boundary checking in free_bootmem_core
With numa enabled, some callers could have a range of memory on one node but try to free that on other node. This can cause some pages to be freed wrongly. For example: when we try to allocate 128g boot ram early for gart/swiotlb, and free that range later so gart/swiotlb can get some range afterwards. With this patch, we don't need to care which node holds the range, just loop to call free_bootmem_node for all online nodes. This patch makes free_bootmem_core() more robust by trimming the sidx and eidx according the ram range that the node has. And make the free_bootmem_core handle this out of range case. We could use bdata_list to make sure the range can be freed for sure. So next time, we don't need to loop online nodes and could use free_bootmem directly.
