    Yeah, but in what format do you expect the user to update it? There is no
    ACPI requirement that all nodes that have a remote distance of 20 to node
    0, for instance, are local to themselves.

    So you'll have to report the entire physical topology in one write to a
    sysfs interface. We don't currently have such a format unless we are to
    allow updating of the pxms.
