That makes sense. But, it might _also_ make sense to fill up all DRAM
first before using any pmem. That could happen if the NUMA interconnect
is really fast and pmem is really slow.

Basically, with the current patches we are depending on the firmware to
"nicely" enumerate the topology and we're keeping the behavior that we
end up with, for now, whatever it might be.

Now, let's sit back and see how nice the firmware is. :)
