Ok, I think that is independent of anything else. Removing block
people and adding the x86 people.

I'm not seeing anything at all that would change the fake numa stuff,
but maybe the cpu hotplug changes?

Thomas/Ingo/Peter - Dave is going away for several months, so you
won't get feedback from him, but can you look at this? Or maybe point
me towards the right people - I'm seeing no possible relevant changes
at all fir x85 numa since 4.9, so it must be some indirect breakage.

Dave is using fake-numa to do performance testing in a VM, and it's a
big deal for the node optimizations for writeback etc. Do you have any
ideas?

Dave, if you're still around, can you send out the kernel config file
you used...
