For magically, if you mean directly replies on zonelist instead of on
pgdat struct, then it is easy to change

But the cose of "unlikely" can be ignored, why can it not be placed
in the path?

That is the point, whether the all nodes should be instanced at boot
time, or not be instanced until there is requirement.

To replace the possible_zonelists, I bring out the following draft
(locking issue is not considered)
diff --git a/include/linux/gfp.h b/include/linux/gfp.h

return NODE_DATA(nid)->node_zonelists + gfp_zonelist(flags);
}
