Fake NUMA has always been useful for testing NUMA code without having to
have a wide range of hardware available to you. It's a clever tool on
x86_64 intended for kernel developers that simply makes it easier to test
code and adds an increased level of robustness to the kernel. I think
it's a valuable addition.
