I think is is an odd NUMA case. The kernel is NUMA but it boots with
only 1 node (even though there are 2) I don't think the vm is getting
setup correctly in the i386 faking node code or some logic with respect
to i386 numa in this situation.

I applied one of the patches I need to see the SRAT with
(I will send this along in a proper email shortly)

Which caused there to be 2 nodes in the system and I didn't panic during
boot.

So works
CONFIG_NUMA with 2 nodes srat discovering

Number of logical nodes in system = 2
Number of memory chunks in system = 2
chunk 0 nid 0 start_pfn 00000000 end_pfn 000f0000
chunk 1 nid 0 start_pfn 00100000 end_pfn 001d0000
Node: 0, start_pfn: 0, end_pfn: 1900544
Node: 1, start_pfn: 0, end_pfn: 0
Reserving 24576 pages of KVA for lmem_map of node 0
Shrinking node 0 from 1900544 pages to 1875968 pages
Reserving 0 pages of KVA for lmem_map of node 1
Shrinking node 1 from 0 pages to 0 pages
Reserving total of 24576 pages for numa KVA remap
reserve_pages = 24576 find_max_low_pfn() ~ 229376
max_pfn = 1900544
6624MB HIGHMEM available.
800MB LOWMEM available.
min_low_pfn = 5685, max_low_pfn = 204800, highstart_pfn = 204800
(Yea there in no memory in the 2nd node but it still boots)

CONFIG_NUMA with 2 nodes but srat aborting the numa Discover and


failed to get NUMA memory information from SRAT table
NUMA - single node, flat memory mode
Node: 0, start_pfn: 0, end_pfn: 156
Node: 0, start_pfn: 256, end_pfn: 982929
Node: 0, start_pfn: 1048576, end_pfn: 1900544
Node: 0, start_pfn: 0, end_pfn: 1900544
Reserving 512 pages of KVA for lmem_map of node 0
Shrinking node 0 from 1900544 pages to 1900032 pages
Reserving total of 512 pages for numa KVA remap
reserve_pages = 512 find_max_low_pfn() ~ 229376
max_pfn = 1900544
6530MB HIGHMEM available.
894MB LOWMEM available.
min_low_pfn = 5685, max_low_pfn = 228864, highstart_pfn = 228864

Hmm this puts us into a situation where the VM thinks there is 1 node
but the cpus think there are 2. I am guessing this it the main issue
and the source of the panic.


Thanks,
Keith
