Your code will NOT allow recycling when NUMA_NO_NODE is configured.
so i am not sure what semantics you are referring to :)

I think that the semantics we want is to allow recycling when
NUMA_NO_NODE is selected, to solve the reported issue ? no ?

well if the user selected NUMA_NO_NODE, then it is his choice ..
Also the user always have the ability to change pool->p.nid, using the
API i introduced. so i don't see any issue with this.

We should keep this outside page_pool, if the user want dev_to_node, he
can set this as a parameter to the page pool from outside. when
NUMA_NO_NODE is selected this means that user doesn't really care.

yes this is the idea, since alloc_page will also select cpu 0 if you
keep NUMA_NO_NODE, then recycle will happen inherently by design
without any change to data path.
