In my understanding, here is for the case when the SRAT entry is enabled,
but memory is not connected. (This is why I sent the first mail).
However, here may have a bug yet.

I would like to test here, but I don't have a real x86-64 machine which can
hot add memory. So, I can just guess now.

Anyway, thanks for your notification. If you have progress about it,
please let me know.

Bye.
