Memoryless nodes: Use N_HIGH_MEMORY for cpusets

cpusets try to ensure that any node added to a cpuset's mems_allowed is
on-line and contains memory.  The assumption was that online nodes contained
memory.  Thus, it is possible to add memoryless nodes to a cpuset and then add
tasks to this cpuset.  This results in continuous series of oom-kill and
apparent system hang.

Change cpusets to use node_states[N_HIGH_MEMORY] [a.k.a.  node_memory_map] in
place of node_online_map when vetting memories.  Return error if admin
attempts to write a non-empty mems_allowed node mask containing only
memoryless-nodes.
