Yes. In our test machine, PMEM nodes show up as memory-only nodes, so
numa_node_id() points to DRAM node.

Here is numactl --hardware output on a 2S test machine.

available: 4 nodes (0-3)
node 0 cpus: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77
node 0 size: 257712 MB
node 0 free: 178251 MB
node 1 cpus: 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102

node 2 free: 438349 MB
node 3 cpus:
node 3 size: 503999 MB
node 3 free: 438349 MB
node distances:
node 0 1 2 3
0: 10 21 20 20
1: 21 10 20 20
2: 20 20 10 20
3: 20 20 20 10

>then we fall back to the PMEM node?

Fall back is possible but not the scope of this patchset. We modified
fallback zonelists in patch 10 to simplify PMEM usage. With that
patch, page allocations on DRAM nodes won't fallback to PMEM nodes.
Instead, PMEM nodes will mainly be used by explicit numactl placement
and as migration target. When there is memory pressure in DRAM node,
LRU cold pages there will be demote migrated to its peer PMEM node on
the same socket by patch 20.

Thanks,
Fengguang
