    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.
