Yes, that's exactly the reason.

It uses _PXM to set nodeID and _PXM is exposed to dom0 (which is a
privileged PV guest).

Re: you previous message: after I "fix" the problem above, I see
pr_info("Max logical packages: %u\n", __max_logical_packages);
but no
pr_warn(CPU %u Converting physical %u to logical package %u\n", ...)

with or without topology_update_package_map() in
