    I know for a fact that it does on x86 if you adjust CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT,
    I've booted kernels all the way back to 2.6.18 with 1K nodes.

    I agree, I haven't been a fan of nodemask_scratch because I think its use
    case is pretty limited, but I do advocate using NODEMASK_ALLOC() when deep
    in the stack. We've made sure that most of the mempolicy code does that
    where manipulating nodemasks is common in -mm.
