Are you asking about the movement of the fake arrays? Since these
are used once and discarded, the it shouldn't have any effect.

If you are asking abut the general increase to 16 bits, I don't
think we have much choice. The hardware for 16 (and as mentioned
32) is coming. I'm trying to minimize as much traffic between
node 0 and the other nodes. Apic id AFAICT is used mostly for
sending IPI's, either to cpus within the node or to remote cpus.
Using the remote cpu's node memory to query it's apicid seems
reasonable? And, of course, having all the data about one's own
node local to itself seems a big win as well.

Thanks,
Mike
