From: Ben Widawsky <ben.widawsky@intel.com>

Add a helper function which takes care of handling multiple preferred
nodes. It will be called by future patches that need to handle this,
specifically VMA based page allocation, and task based page allocation.
Huge pages don't quite fit the same pattern because they use different
underlying page allocation functions. This consumes the previous
interleave policy specific allocation function to make a one stop shop
for policy based allocation.

For now, only interleaved policy will be used so there should be no
functional change yet. However, if bisection points to issues in the
next few commits, it was likely the fault of this patch.

Similar functionality is offered via policy_node() and
policy_nodemask(). By themselves however, neither can achieve this
fallback style of sets of nodes.

v3: add __GFP_NOWARN for first try (Feng)
