but the code here is always using the first CPU of a NUMA node or did I
miss something?

Something like this:
| tools/testing/selftests/rcutorture/bin/kvm.sh --torture rcuperf --configs TREE

I think difference might come from cpufreq on the host. But in general,
this is what you have been asking for or did you want to see something
on the host (or an additional argument to the script)?

sure.
