[PATCH: 004/017]Memory hotplug for new nodes v.4.(generic alloc pgdat)

From: Yasunori Goto <y-goto_at_jp.fujitsu.com>

For node hotplug, basically we have to allocate new pgdat.
But, there are several types of implementations of pgdat.

1. Allocate only pgdat.
   This style allocate only pgdat area.
   And its address is recorded in node_data[].
   It is most popular style.

2. Static array of pgdat
   In this case, all of pgdats are static array.
   Some archs use this style.

3. Allocate not only pgdat, but also per node data.
   To increase performance, each node has copy of some data as
   a per node data. So, this area must be allocated too.

   Ia64 is this style. Ia64 has the copies of node_data[] array
   on each per node data to increase performance.

In this series of patches, treat (1) as generic arch.

generic archs can use generic function. (2) and (3) should have
its own if necessary. 

This patch defines pgdat allocator.
Updating NODE_DATA() macro function is in other patch.

( I'll post another patch for (3).
  I don't know (2) which can use memory hotplug.
  So, there is not patch for (2). )
