Allocate frequently-accessed data structures from the NUMA node
associated with this device to avoid slow cross-NUMA node memory
accesses.

Only the following memory allocations are made NUMA-aware:

1. Called during probe. If called in the data path then hopefully we're
   executing on a CPU in the same NUMA node as the device. If the CPU is
   not in the right NUMA node then it's unclear whether forcing memory
   allocations to use the device's NUMA node will increase or decrease
   performance.

2. Memory will be frequently accessed from the data path. There is no
   need to worry about data that is not accessed from
   performance-critical code paths.

This patch adds a non-meminit alloc_pages_exact_nid() caller so I've
removed the __meminit added by commit e19318116048 ("mm/page_alloc.c:
add __meminit to alloc_pages_exact_nid()").

I have included the alloc_pages_exact_nid() __meminit removal in this
patch to provide context for reviewers.
