Do we really have to special case this for PMEM? Why cannot we simply go
in the zonelist order? In other words why cannot we use the same logic
for a larger NUMA machine and instead of swapping simply fallback to a
less contended NUMA node? It can be a regular DRAM, PMEM or whatever
other type of memory node.
