It looks like we should break out the second half of
discontig.c:find_pernode_space() into a second function that inits the
bootmaps in reverse order.  As an added bonus, we could check to make
sure that all of the pernode spaces actually got allocated and print a
warning and/or disable the node if not.  That would make debugging weird
init time failures a bit easier (I think Alex ran into a problem that
would have been quickly solved if we had such checks).  Wanna take a
stab at it?
