I tried several values for the multipliers (IDLE_NODE_REBALANCE_TICK
and BUSY_NODE_REBALANCE_TICK) on a 4 node NUMAQ (16 700MHZ Pentium III
CPUs, 16 GB memory). The interesting results follow:

Kernels:

stock59 - linux 2.5.59 with cputime_stats patch
ingoI50B10 - stock59 with Ingo's B0 patch as modified by Martin
with a IDLE_NODE_REBALANCE_TICK multiplier of 50
and a BUSY_NODE_REBALANCE_TICK multiplier of 10
ingoI2B2 - stock59 with Ingos B0 patch with the original multipliers (2)

Kernbench:

Martin already posted numbers with 10/10 for the multipliers.

It looks like on the NUMAQ the 50/10 values give the best results,
at least on these tests. I suspect that on other architectures
the optimum numbers will vary. Most likely on machines with lower
latency to off node memory, lower multipliers will help. It will
be interesting to see numbers from Erich from the NEC IA64 boxes.
