I think the kernel can define all possible

cpuid <-> lapicid <-> pxm <-> nodeid

mapping at boot with using firmware table information.

One concern is current x86 logic for memory-less node v.s. memory hotplug.
(as I explained before)

My idea is
step1. build all possible mapping at boot cpuid <-> apicid <-> pxm <-> node id at boot.

But this may be overwritten by x86's memory less node logic. So,
step2. check node is online or not before calling kmalloc. If offline, use -1.
rather than updating workqueue's attribute.

Thanks,
