Oscar has noticed that we splat

when adding memory to a node that is currently offline.

The VM_WARN_ON is just too loud without a good reason.  In this
particular case we are doing

alloc_pages_node(node, GFP_KERNEL|__GFP_RETRY_MAYFAIL|__GFP_NOWARN, order)

so we do not insist on allocating from the given node (it is more a
hint) so we can fall back to any other populated node and moreover we
explicitly ask to not warn for the allocation failure.

Soften the warning only to cases when somebody asks for the given node
explicitly by __GFP_THISNODE.
