[PATCH] ia64: Ensure proper NUMA distance and possible map initialization

John Paul reported a warning about bogus NUMA distance values spurred by

  620a6dc40754 ("sched/topology: Make sched_init_numa() use a set for the deduplicating sort")

In this case, the afflicted machine comes up with a reported 256 possible
nodes, all of which are 0 distance away from one another. This was
previously silently ignored, but is now caught by the aforementioned

The culprit is ia64's node_possible_map which remains unchanged from its
initialization value of NODE_MASK_ALL. In John's case, the machine doesn't
have any SRAT nor SLIT table, but AIUI the possible map remains untouched
regardless of what ACPI tables end up being parsed. Thus, !online &&
possible nodes remain with a bogus distance of 0 (distances \in [0, 9] are
"reserved and have no meaning" as per the ACPI spec).

Follow x86 / drivers/base/arch_numa's example and set the possible map to
the parsed map, which in this case seems to be the online map.

This might need an earlier Fixes: tag, but all of this is quite old and
dusty (the git blame rabbit hole leads me to ~2008/2007)

Alternatively, can we deprecate ia64 already?
