Revert "x86, NUMA: Fix fakenuma boot failure"

Andreas Herrmann reported that 7d6b46707f24 ("x86, NUMA: Fix fakenuma
boot failure") causes certain physical NUMA topologies (for example
AMD Magny-Cours) to move sibling cpus to a single node when in reality
they are in separate domains.

This may result in some nodes being completely void of cpus, which
doesn't accurately represent the correct topology. The system will
boot, but will have suboptimal NUMA performance.

This commit was intended as a fix for NUMA emulation, but should
not cause a regression for real NUMA machines as a side effect.

( There will be a separate fix for the numa-debug code, which
will not affect physical topologies. )
