Hm. When I tested AIM7 compute on a NUMA box, there was a marked
throughput increase at the low to moderate load end of the test spectrum
IIRC. Fully repeatable. There were also other benefits unrelated to
power, ie mitigation of the evil face of select_idle_sibling(). I
rather liked what I saw during ~big box test-drive.

(just saying there are other aspects besides joules in there)
