    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. :)
