Subject[PATCH] x86/numa: Use cpumask_available instead of hardcoded NULL check
node_to_cpumask_map is of type cpumask_var_t[].

When CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK is set, cpumask_var_t is typedef'd to a
pointer for dynamic allocation, else to an array of one element. The
"wicked game" can be checked on line 700 of include/linux/cpumask.h.

The lines changed in this commit were probably written by the original
authors with CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y (i.e. dynamic allocation) in mind,
checking if the cpumask was available via a direct NULL check.

When CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK is not set, GCC gives the below given warning
while compiling the kernel.

Fix that by using cpumask_available(), which does the NULL check when
CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK is set, otherwise returns true. Use it wherever
such checks are made.

Conditional definitions of cpumask_available() can be found along with
the definition of cpumask_var_t. Check the cpumask.h reference mentioned
