> Some architectures like POWER can have a NUMA node_possible_map that
> contains sparse entries. This causes memory corruption with openvswitch
> since it allocates flow_cache with a multiple of num_possible_nodes() and
> assumes the node variable returned by for_each_node will index into
> flow->stats[node].
> Use nr_node_ids to allocate a maximal sparse array instead of
> num_possible_nodes().
> The crash was noticed after 3af229f2 was applied as it changed the
> node_possible_map to match node_online_map on boot.
