[PATCH mmotm] Fix NUMA accounting in numastat.txt




In Documentation/numastat.txt, it confused me.
For example, there are nodes [0,1] in system.

barrios:~$ cat /proc/zoneinfo | egrep 'numa|zone'
Node 0, zone DMA
numa_hit 33226
numa_miss 1739
numa_foreign 27978
..
..
Node 1, zone DMA
numa_hit 307
numa_miss 46900
numa_foreign 0

1) In node 0, NUMA_MISS means it wanted to allocate page
in node 1 but ended up with page in node 0

2) In node 0, NUMA_FOREIGN means it wanted to allocate page
in node 0 but ended up with page from Node 1.

But now, numastat explains it oppositely about (MISS, FOREIGN).
Let's fix up with viewpoint of zone.
