Hmm, so even if these were dependent on a kernel parameter, do you think
this patch would still be needed exactly as it is written? In other
words, do you believe that Mark's system should really emit 1272 lines for
this data instead of the 40 with this patch?

I'm all for making this dependent on a kernel parameter, but it's a
seperate change than what this patch is addressing. We need the apic id
mappings because they aren't exposed to userspace in any other way,
they need to exported somehow and this is a clear improvement to reduce
verbosity in the kernel log.

So I really don't know what you're insisting here, you want this
compression to be accompanied by another patch which makes the call to
acpi_numa_print_srat_mapping() depend on a kernel parameter? Or are you
saying we shouldn't compress it at all and Mike should just deal with 1272
lines instead of 40? Or are you saying we should export this static
information via sysfs?
