    IMHO this is too much clutter. Just make it mandatory for the
    architectures to define their own MAX_NR_MEMBLKS in the numa case.

    Or actually even better just have a

    #ifndef MAX_NR_MEMBLKS
    #define MAX_NR_MEMBLKS 1
    #endif

    in the generic code and let every architecture that wants to override
    it do so.
