Saw that too.

For Altix 20 means that the other node is remote but in the same
enclosure / motherboard. Latency is very low in these cases. I think in
these small configurations it is better to go off node rather than using
the reclaim logic.

Other small configurations may have the same issues.

RECLAIM_DISTANCE can be set per arch if the default is not okay.
