    Yeah, IBM sold a couple of these "interesting" 32-bit NUMA machines:

    I think those maxed out at 8 nodes, ever. But, no distro ever turned
    NUMA on for i386, so no one actually depends on it working. We do have
    a bunch of systems that we use for testing and so forth. It'd be a
    shame to make these suck *too* much. The NUMA-Q is probably also so
    intertwined with CONFIG_NUMA that we'd likely never get it running

    I'd rather just bloat page->flags on these platforms or move the
    sparsemem/zone/node bits elsewhere than kill NUMA support.
