Maybe add something to explain why you are not simply mapping the
existing memory to NUMA node 0 which is after all just a numbering scheme
used by the kernel and can be used arbitrarily?

This could be seen more as a bug in the arch code during the setup of NUMA
nodes. The two nodes are created by the firmwware / bootstrap code after
all. Just do not do it?
