No, it is a kernel bug (don't be confused by the second message, the
first one describes the bug).

The problem is simple:

- net/sunrpc/svc.c uses highest_possible_node_id()
- include/linux/nodemask.h says highest_possible_node_id() is
out-of-line #if MAX_NUMNODES > 1
- the out-of-line highest_possible_node_id() is in lib/cpumask.c
- lib/Makefile: lib-$(CONFIG_SMP) += cpumask.o
CONFIG_ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE=y, CONFIG_SMP=n, CONFIG_SUNRPC=y
-> highest_possible_node_id() is used in net/sunrpc/svc.c
CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT defined and > 0
-> include/linux/numa.h: MAX_NUMNODES > 1
-> compile error
The bug is not present on architectures where ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE
depends on NUMA (but m32r isn't the only affected architecture).
