Subject[PATCH 3/3] mm/page_alloc: Keep memoryless cpuless node 0 offline
Date
Currently Linux kernel with CONFIG_NUMA on a system with multiple
possible nodes, marks node 0 as online at boot. However in practice,
there are systems which have node 0 as memoryless and cpuless.

This can cause numa_balancing to be enabled on systems with only one node
with memory and CPUs. The existence of this dummy node which is cpuless and
memoryless node can confuse users/scripts looking at output of lscpu /
numactl.

Lets stop assuming that Node 0 is always online.

v5.6-rc4
available: 2 nodes (0,2)
node 0 cpus:
node 0 size: 0 MB
node 0 free: 0 MB
node 2 cpus: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
node 2 size: 32625 MB
node 2 free: 31490 MB
node distances:
node 0 2
0: 10 20
2: 20 10
