Me confused.

How the following could be wrong ?

static inline int cache_free_alien(struct kmem_cache *cachep, void *objp)
int mynode = numa_node_id();
int objnode = virt_to_nid(objp); // or whatever

if (mynode == objnode)
return 0;

If numa_node_id() is equal to the node of the page containing the first byte
of the object, then object is on the local node. Or what ?

Thank you
