Guess you actually mean
2 10 2
1 <---> 0 <---> 2 <---> 3

Guess I got your point even though the diagram is not correct :-)

If the topology is as below(add a node left to node1 rather than
node0):

9 2 10 2
A <---> 1 <---> 0 <---> 2 <---> 3

For nodeA,
NUMA<=10: span=A groups=(A)
NUMA<=12: span= A groups= (A)
NUMA<=19: span=A-1 groups=(A),(1)
NUMA<=20: span=A-1 groups=(A,1)
*1 NUMA<=21: span=A-1-0 groups=(A,1), node1's numa<=20

For node0,
NUMA<=10: span=9 groups=(0)
#3 NUMA<=12: span=0-1 groups=(0)->(1)
#2 NUMA<=19: span=0-1 groups=(0,1)
#1 NUMA<=20: span=0-1-2 groups=(0,1),....

*1 will firstly try #1, and it finds 2 is outside the A-1-0,
then it will try #2. Finally #2 will be degenerated, so we
should actually use #3. Amazing!
