mm, numa: reclaim from all nodes within reclaim distance

RECLAIM_DISTANCE represents the distance between nodes at which it is
deemed too costly to allocate from; it's preferred to try to reclaim from
a local zone before falling back to allocating on a remote node with such
a distance.

To do this, zone_reclaim_mode is set if the distance between any two
nodes on the system is greather than this distance.  This, however, ends
up causing the page allocator to reclaim from every zone regardless of
its affinity.

What we really want is to reclaim only from zones that are closer than
RECLAIM_DISTANCE.  This patch adds a nodemask to each node that
represents the set of nodes that are within this distance.  During the
zone iteration, if the bit for a zone's node is set for the local node,
then reclaim is attempted; otherwise, the zone is skipped.
