I like this support and I'm pretty sure you used it to reproduce my
problems with sched/numa locally, but I think it would be better to
seperate it out as a different parameter such as slit=fake so that we can
still use it to fake the SLIT of our NUMA machines without requiring
numa=fake which provides no guarantees to break the nodes along physical
boundaries.

So without seperating it out into slit=fake, we can't change this
information without changing the SLIT itself and that makes debugging
harder.
