it looks like numa emu does not support that conf already.

old code:
void __cpuinit numa_add_cpu(int cpu)
unsigned long addr;
u16 apicid;
int physnid;
int nid = NUMA_NO_NODE;

apicid = early_per_cpu(x86_cpu_to_apicid, cpu);
if (apicid != BAD_APICID)
nid = apicid_to_node[apicid];
if (nid == NUMA_NO_NODE)
nid = early_cpu_to_node(cpu);
BUG_ON(nid == NUMA_NO_NODE || !node_online(nid));

current code:
void __cpuinit numa_add_cpu(int cpu)
int physnid, nid;

nid = numa_cpu_node(cpu);
if (nid == NUMA_NO_NODE)
nid = early_cpu_to_node(cpu);
BUG_ON(nid == NUMA_NO_NODE || !node_online(nid));

physnid = emu_nid_to_phys[nid];

* Map the cpu to each emulated node that is allocated on the physical
* node of the cpu's apic id.
if (emu_nid_to_phys[nid] == physnid)
cpumask_set_cpu(cpu, node_to_cpumask_map[nid]);

please note numa_cpu_node or old code will return nid that is node 0, and even node0 does not mem and not onlined.

maybe we can just change to nid = cpu_to_node() to get nodeid that is onlined.
