[PATCH] Add __GFP_THISNODE to avoid fallback to other nodes and ignore cpuset/memory policy restrictions

Add a new gfp flag __GFP_THISNODE to avoid fallback to other nodes.  This
flag is essential if a kernel component requires memory to be located on a
certain node.  It will be needed for alloc_pages_node() to force allocation
on the indicated node and for alloc_pages() to force allocation on the
current node.
