    Yeah, that's entirely my fault for slacking on sending this out... I
    should have sent this a while ago. It is a small portion of some larger
    sched_domains changes that I am working on, but at some point I realized
    my larger changeset will be far more controversial and have a much
    larger impact than some of the smaller bits, as well as not being ready
    for prime time yet. Plus, like I said earlier, this allows
    arch-specific tweaking with minimal intrusiveness from the application
    of this patch forward.

    It *should* be. I'd be quite happy if you just picked it up in -mm to
    assure it far wider testing. I've compiled and booted it on x86, x86_64
    & ppc64. I've got no access to ia64 right now, or I'd test it there.
    But the patch *will* spit out #errors for any arch that doesn't have
    SD_NODE_INIT defined if they also have NUMA defined. I'm don't know of
    anyone else (ie: *not* x86, x86_64, ppc64 & ia64) that is building NUMA
    kernels, but if they are, it's a trivial patch to their
    include/asm/topology.h to make the arch build.

    Of course, the ultimate decision is yours, Andrew...
