On my local arm64 guest('virt' machine type), the target_node is
set to -1 at this line.
That is:
The condition "spa->flags & ACPI_NFIT_PROXIMITY_VALID" is hit.

Sorry,Dan. I thought I missed your previous mail:

=========================================
Looks like it is the NFIT driver, thanks.

If you're getting NUMA_NO_NODE in dax_kmem from the NFIT driver in
means your ACPI NFIT table is failing to populate correct numa
information. You could try the following to fix it up, but I think the
real problem is that your platform BIOS needs to add the proper numa
data.

diff --git a/drivers/acpi/nfit/core.c b/drivers/acpi/nfit/core.c

===================================================

Do you still suggest fixing like this?
