Hi, Michael,

Here's a better and more complete fix for the problem. Could you
please see if it works for you? I tested it on a real NUMA box and it
seemed to work fine there.

Description
-----------

This patch provides a fix for the problem found by
Michael Ellerman <michael@ellerman.id.au> while using fake NUMA nodes
on a cell box. The code modifies node id iff (as in if and only if)
fake NUMA nodes are created.
