    I just checked, both QPI and HT are bi-directional links so anything
    mid-sized x86 had better be symmetric. Big numa can of course stick in
    their own interconnects and might do uni-directional stuff, although I
    doubt anybody still does that.

    The distance table I have for a 4096 cpu SGI machine is fully symmetric
    for instance.

    This of course doesn't mean we should make hard assumptions about this
    in the scheduler -- and we don't. But in this case it does mean the HP
    table is very funny indeed.
