I am not convinced all architectures that have CONFIG_NUMA
need to be a requirement, since some of them (eg. Alpha)
seem to be lacking a maintainer nowadays.

It would be good if Andrea could touch base with the maintainers
of the actively maintained architectures with NUMA, and get them
to sign off on the way autonuma does things, and work with them
to get autonuma ported to those architectures.

I am not convinced about this part either way.

I do not see how a migration numa thread (which could potentially
use idle cpu time) will be any worse than migrate on fault, which
will always take away time from the userspace process.
