    Subject[RFC][PATCH 0/5] various sched and numa bits
    Hi,

    The first two patches change how the load-balancer traverses the sched_domain
    tree. Currently we go one level up on the first non-idle cpu, change that to
    be the least loaded cpu. The second adds a little serialization to the
    sched_domain traversal, so that no two cpus of the same group go up.

    Paul, can you run these through linsched to see if they make anything worse?
    They make conceptual sense, but that never says much these days :/

    The following two patches extend NUMA emulation and were used to test the last
    patch.

    The last patch does a complete re-implementation of CONFIG_NUMA support for
    the scheduler and should get us a topology that matches the NUMA interconnects
    as opposed to the semi-random stuff we have now. The code assumes a number of
    things which I hope are true, but lacking any interesting hardware what do I
    know... Its tested by using the node_distance() table from an quad-socket AMD
    Magny-Cours, which is a non-fully-connected system -- see 3/5.
