So, we're changing the cpu ID to NUMA node mapping because current
NUMA code is ignoring PXM for memoryless nodes? That's it?

Ah well, even then, the obviously right thing to do is updating NUMA
code to always keep track of PXM information. We don't really want to
pile NUMA hacks in random users of NUMA code.
