Here's some :)

Can you call this fake_numa_args or something, cmdline is a bit generic.

As I mentioned in my other email I think this is broken, you
unconditionally overwrite *nid, even if no fake numa was specified?

I can't convince myself that this is 100% ok, the moving of
node_set_online(). At the very least it's a change in behaviour,
previously we would online the node regardless of the memory limit.

Ditto previous comment.
