[PATCH 1/3] mm: return NUMA_NO_NODE in local_memory_node if zonelists are not setup

We can call local_memory_node() before the zonelists are setup. In that
case, first_zones_zonelist() will not set zone and the reference to
zone->node will Oops. Catch this case, and, since we presumably running
very early, just return that any node will do.
