    Btw., the NUMA stuff never really worked percpu alloc, as per Eric's observation:

    | Anyway, I just discovered per_cpu data on my machine (NUMA capable) all sit on a
    | single node, if 32bit kernel used.

    ... and in practice it's not really relevant on 32-bit anyway. So we can decouple
    the two issues just fine.

    Thanks,

    Ingo
