I really can't answer that one. The people who care about
NUMA would have to do that. It just shouldn't be possible
to make a config with a build error like this.

OK, I prefer option 2 because it is more generic (not hardware-
specific). Someone else can prefer option 1 because it is
hardware-specific. :)
