Subject[PATCH 1/1] mm: only dispaly online cpus of the numa node
When I executed numactl -H(which read /sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/cpumap
and display cpumask_of_node for each node), but I got different result on
X86 and arm64. For each numa node, the former only displayed online CPUs,
and the latter displayed all possible CPUs. Unfortunately, both Linux
documentation and numactl manual have not described it clear.

I sent a mail to ask for help, and Michal Hocko <> replied
that he preferred to print online cpus because it doesn't really make much
sense to bind anything on offline nodes.
