Hello Dave,

IIUC NUMA re-work in principle involves these functional changes

1. Enumerating compute and memory nodes in heterogeneous environment (short/medium term)
2. Enumerating memory node attributes as seen from the compute nodes (short/medium term)
3. Changing core MM to accommodate multi attribute memory (long term)

The first two set of changes can get the user space applications
moving by identifying the right nodes and their attributes through
sysfs interface.

No. I did not get enough time this year to rework on the original
proposal I had. But will be able to help here to make this interface
more generic, abstract out these properties which is extensible in
the future.
