I kept the baseline as 4.18.
The only revert I know since 4.16 from a numa balancing front is the one
where we unintentionally skipped task migrations. It did somehow give good
results to a set of benchmarks but it would completely circumvent the task
migration code. I am not sure if Jirka was taking the numbers from that
kernel. From what I remember, we will pulled it out before 4.16 stabilized.
