[PATCH] sparsemem base: early_pfn_to_nid() (works before sparse is initialized)

The following four patches provide the last needed changes before the
introduction of sparsemem.  For a more complete description of what this
will do, please see this patch:

http://www.sr71.net/patches/2.6.11/2.6.11-bk7-mhp1/broken-out/B-sparse-150-sparsemem.patch

Three of these are i386-only, but one of them reorganizes the macros
used to manage the space in page->flags, and will affect all platforms.
There are analogous patches to the i386 ones for ppc64, ia64, and
x86_64, but those will be submitted by the normal arch maintainers.

The combination of the four patches has been test-booted on a variety of
i386 hardware, and compiled for ppc64, i386, and x86-64 with about 17
different .configs.  It's also been runtime-tested on ia64 configs (with
more patches on top).

This patch:

We _know_ which node pages in general belong to, at least at a very gross
level in node_{start,end}_pfn[].  Use those to target the allocations of
pages.
