numa: update Documentation/vm/numa, add memoryless node info

Kamezawa Hiroyuki requested documentation for the numa_mem_id() and slab
related changes.  He suggested Documentation/vm/numa for this
documentation.  Looking at this file, it seems to me to be hopelessly out
of date relative to current Linux NUMA support.  At the risk of going down
a rathole, I have made an attempt to rewrite the doc at a slightly higher
level [I think] and provide pointers to other in-tree documents and
out-of-tree man pages that cover the details.

Let the games begin.
