From: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com>

is_valid_nodemask() is introduced by 19770b32. but it does not match
its comments, because it does not check the zone which > policy_zone.

Also in b377fd, this commits told us, if highest zone is ZONE_MOVABLE,
we should also apply memory policies to it. so ZONE_MOVABLE should be valid zone
for policies. is_valid_nodemask() need to be changed to match it.

Fix: check all zones, even its zoneid > policy_zone.
Use nodes_intersects() instead open code to check it.
