[Patch] make uncached allocator more node aware

From: Dean Nelson <dcn_at_sgi.com>
Date: 2006-06-29 04:50:09
The uncached allocator has a function, uncached_get_new_chunk(), that needs
to be serialized on a per node basis. It also has a global variable,
allocated_granules, which should be defined on a per node basis and protected
by that serialization. Additionally, all error returns from functions called
(like ia64_pal_mc_drain()) should be handled appropriately.
