Ignore my statement about earlier testing --- it was all on single-node
machines.

Something is broken with multi-node on Intel, but failure modes are
different. Prior to this patch build_sched_domain() reports an error and
pretty soon we crash in scheduler (don't remember off the top of my
head). With patch applied I crash mush later, when one of the drivers
does kmalloc_node(.., cpu_to_node(cpu)) and cpu_to_node() returns 1,
which should never happen ("x86: Booted up 1 node, 32 CPUs" is reported,
for example).

2-node AMD box doesn't have these problems.

I haven't upgraded the Intel machine for about a month but this all must
have happened in 4.9 timeframe.

So I can't answer your question since we clearly have other problems on
Xen. I will be looking into this.
