I'm not sure I see a use case for 'node_side_cached'. Instead I need
to know if a cache intercepts a "System RAM" resource, because a cache
in front of a reserved address range would not be impacted by page
allocator randomization. Or, are you saying have memblock generically
describes this capability and move the responsibility of acting on
that data to a higher level?

The other detail to consider is the cache ratio size, but that would
be a follow on feature. The use case is to automatically determine the
ratio to pass to numa_emulation:

What's this acpi_parse_hmat() stub for?

I'm concerned that we may be stretching memblock past its intended use
case especially for just this randomization case. For example, I think
memblock_find_in_range() gets confused in the presence of
MEMBLOCK_SIDECACHED memblocks.
