Ok, I sent (a slightly modified version of) this patch up to Linus
as part of the ia64 merge window pull ... so it is safe to update
drivers/acpi/numa.c with a patch that will parse all the SRAT cpu
entries down to ia64 now.


Pasted version of commit - which gmail will munge ...

[IA64] Avoid array overflow if there are too many cpus in SRAT table

acpi_numa_init() has to parse the whole SRAT table, even if the
kernel wants to limit the number of cpus it will use (because the
ones it is going to use may be described by entries at the end of
the SRAT table). Avoid overflowing the node_cpuid array.
