[PATCH] powerpc: fix uninitialised error in numa.c

chroma_defconfig currently gives me this with gcc 4.6:
  arch/powerpc/mm/numa.c:638:13: error: 'dm' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=uninitialized]

It's a bogus warning since of_get_drconf_memory() only writes it

cc: stable at kernel.org
Also affects 3.4 and 3.3 stable.
