I think you might have mishandled the proper accounting of intra_count.
How about something like:

The meaning of scan value:

0 - pass to next cna node, which is in the same numa node. Additional
cna node may or may not be added to the secondary queue

1 - pass to next cna node, which may not be in the same numa node. No
change to secondary queue

2 - exceed intra node handoff threshold, unconditionally merge back the
secondary queue cna nodes, if available

>2 no cna node of the same numa node found, unconditionally merge back
the secondary queue cna nodes, if available

The code will be easier to read if symbolic names instead of just numbers.
Cheers,
Longman
