SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] x86: Sanity check the e820 against the SRAT table using e820 map only

btw., it would be nice to have a debug check that prints a warning
if the SRAT does not cover all RAM, or if it covers RAM that is not
present in the e820 map. Such a warning might alert us to double
check all the PXM settings in the SRAT and could uncover more quirks
like the above ...
