*groan*... what does it do for things like percpu memory? ISTR the
per-cpu chunks are all allocated early too. Having them all use memory
out of node-0 would seem sub-optimal.

Can it happen that it introduces a new distance in the table? One that
hasn't been seen before? This example only has 10 and 40, but suppose
the new node lands at distance 20 (or 80); can such a thing happen?

If not; why not?

So you're relying on sched_domain_numa_masks_set/clear() to fix this up,
but that in turn relies on the sched_domain_numa_levels thing to stay
accurate.

This all seems very fragile and unfortunate.
