I used libnuma-2.0.9. Here is a strace output related to
numa_alloc_onnode()

mmap(NULL, 4194304, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, 0, 0) = 0x7fe9b8334000
mbind(0x7fe9b8334000, 4194304, MPOL_BIND, 0x1b43bf0, 1025, 0) = 1

I believe mbind() returning a positive number is just a wrong behavior.
A tricky part is that libnuma only checks a negative error,
so numa_alloc_onnode() itself didn't fail. I noticed this first when I
was checking
memory placement using the proc pagemap.

Thank you for the pointer!
I think queue_pages_test_walk() returns 1.
My fix may not be in a right place but someone needs to fix this.
