mm: use alloc_bootmem_node_nopanic() on really needed path

Stefan found nobootmem does not work on his system that has only 8M of
RAM.  This causes an early panic:

  BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
   BIOS-88: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009f000 (usable)
   BIOS-88: 0000000000100000 - 0000000000840000 (usable)
  bootconsole [earlyser0] enabled
  Notice: NX (Execute Disable) protection missing in CPU or disabled in BIOS!
  DMI not present or invalid.
  last_pfn = 0x840 max_arch_pfn = 0x100000
  init_memory_mapping: 0000000000000000-0000000000840000
  8MB LOWMEM available.
    mapped low ram: 0 - 00840000
    low ram: 0 - 00840000
  Zone PFN ranges:
    DMA      0x00000001 -> 0x00001000
    Normal   empty
  Movable zone start PFN for each node
  early_node_map[2] active PFN ranges
      0: 0x00000001 -> 0x0000009f
      0: 0x00000100 -> 0x00000840

It turns out that we should ignore the low limit of 16M.

Use alloc_bootmem_node_nopanic() in this case.
