dummy_numa_init() loops over memblock.memory and passes nid=0 to
numa_add_memblk() which essentially wraps memblock_set_node(). However,
memblock_set_node() can cope with entire memory span itself, so the loop
over memblock.memory regions is redundant.

Replace the loop with a single call to memblock_set_node() to the entire
memory.

Hi Mike,

I had a similar patch I was going to post shortly so can add a bit more
on the advantages of this one.

Beyond cleaning up, it also fixes an issue with a buggy ACPI firmware in which the SRAT
table covers some but not all of the memory in the EFI memory map.  Stealing bits
from the draft cover letter I had for that...
