[PATCH] x86_64: Reject SRAT tables that don't cover all memory

Broken BIOS on Iwill 8way systems reports these and it causes the bootmem
allocator to crash. Add a sanity check if all the PXMs in the
SRAT table cover all memory as reported by e820. If the sanity
check fails the SRAT is rejected and the code will fall back
to discover the NUMA topology using the K8 northbridge registers
when applicable.
