mm/cma.c: use exact_nid true to fix possible per-numa cma leak
Calling cma_declare_contiguous_nid() with false exact_nid for per-numa reservation can easily cause cma leak and various confusion. For example, mm/hugetlb.c is trying to reserve per-numa cma for gigantic pages. But it can easily leak cma and make users confused when system has memoryless nodes. In case the system has 4 numa nodes, and only numa node0 has memory. if we set hugetlb_cma=4G in bootargs, mm/hugetlb.c will get 4 cma areas for 4 different numa nodes. since exact_nid=false in current code, all 4 numa nodes will get cma successfully from node0, but hugetlb_cma[1 to 3] will never be available to hugepage will only allocate memory from hugetlb_cma[0]. In case the system has 4 numa nodes, both numa node0&2 has memory, other nodes have no memory. if we set hugetlb_cma=4G in bootargs, mm/hugetlb.c will get 4 cma areas for 4 different numa nodes. since exact_nid=false in current code, all 4 numa nodes will get cma successfully from node0 or 2, but hugetlb_cma[1] and [3] will never be available to hugepage as mm/hugetlb.c will only allocate memory from hugetlb_cma[0] and hugetlb_cma[2]. This causes permanent leak of the cma areas which are supposed to be used by memoryless node. Of cource we can workaround the issue by letting mm/hugetlb.c scan all cma areas in alloc_gigantic_page() even node_mask includes node0 only. that means when node_mask includes node0 only, we can get page from hugetlb_cma[1] to hugetlb_cma[3]. But this will cause kernel crash in free_gigantic_page() while it wants to free page by: cma_release(hugetlb_cma[page_to_nid(page)], page, 1 << order) On the other hand, exact_nid=false won't consider numa distance, it might be not that useful to leverage cma areas on remote nodes. I feel it is much simpler to make exact_nid true to make everything clear. After that, memoryless nodes won't be able to reserve per-numa CMA from other nodes which have memory.
