nobootmem, x86: Fix 32bit numa system without RAM on node 0

On one system without RAM on node0, got following boot dump with a 32
bit NUMA kernel:

early_node_map[4] active PFN ranges
    1: 0x00000010 -> 0x00000099
    1: 0x00000100 -> 0x0007da00
    1: 0x0007e800 -> 0x0007ffa0
    1: 0x0007ffae -> 0x0007ffb0
Subtract (29 early reservations)

  #028 [007e9ca000 - 007ff95000]

Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode...Ok.

When 32bit NUMA is used, free_all_bootmem() will still only go over with
node id 0.

If node 0 doesn't have RAM installed, We need to go with node1
because early_node_map still use 1 for all ranges, and ram from node1
become low ram.

Use MAX_NUMNODES like 64-bit NUMA does.

Note: BOOTMEM path has the same problem.
      this bug exist before We have NO_BOOTMEM support.

-v3: add more comments, and fix bootmem path too.
-v4: seperate bootmem path fix
