SGI systems had extremely discontiguous memory (they used some high
order physical address bits in the tens/hundreds of terabyte range for the
node number ... so there would be a few GBytes of actual memory then
a huge gap before the next node had a few more Gbytes).

I don't know of anyone still booting upstream on an SN2, so if we start doing
serious hack and slash the chances are high that SN2 will be broken (if it isn't
already).
