How do you enforce kernel doesn't allocate from those reserved nodes?
They will be in a fallback zonelists so once the memory gets used on all
other ones then the kernel happily spills over to your reserved node.

This will only enforce userspace to follow and I strongly suspect that
tasks in the root cgroup will be allowed to allocate as well.
