Well the below code also uses the above variable, but the variable is
defined in mm/autonuma.c in a later patch.

The aa.git/autonuma branch is constantly tracked by Wu C=1 checker
with the allconfig tester, every commit is built independently, so if
I add a minuscule error that breaks inter-bisectability or if I adds a
C=1 warning for the headers inclusion order I get an automated
email. Any patch reordering needs to take those things into account,
while trying to keep the size of the patches small too (I can't put
all new files in a single patch).

That is what the AUTONUMA_IMPOSSIBLE_FLAG is about, that flag is set
if you boot with "noautonuma" as parameter to the kernel. (soon that
flag will be renamed to AUTONUMA_POSSIBLE_FLAG and it'll work in the
same but opposite way)

The 12 byte per page overhead goes away, the
knuma_scand/knuma_migratedN kernel daemons are not started, the
task_autonuma/mm_autonuma are not allocated and the kernel boots as if
the hardware is not NUMA (the only loss is a pointer in the mm
struct... the pointer in the task struct is zero cost, stack overflow
permitting :).
