The NUMA selection code definitely gets in the way. And to be honest,
this NUMA thing is only there for the benefit of a terminally broken
implementation (Cavium ThunderX), which we should have never supported
the first place.

Let's rework this and simply use the managed affinity whenever
available instead. It may well be that it will break TX1, but I care
about it just as much as Cavium/Marvell does...

Please give this new patch a shot on your system (my D05 doesn't have
any managed devices):

Thanks,

M.
