Subject[PATCH 0/3] Offline memoryless cpuless node 0
Date
Linux kernel configured 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
1. numa_balancing to be enabled on systems with only one online node.
2. Existence of dummy (cpuless and memoryless) node which can confuse
users/scripts looking at output of lscpu / numactl.

This patchset wants to correct this anomaly.

This should only affect systems that have CONFIG_MEMORYLESS_NODES.
Currently there are only 2 architectures ia64 and powerpc that have this
config.

v5.6-rc4

node 2 size: 32625 MB
node 2 free: 31490 MB

Srikar Dronamraju (3):
powerpc/numa: Set numa_node for all possible cpus
powerpc/numa: Prefer node id queried from vphn
mm/page_alloc: Keep memoryless cpuless node 0 offline
