It's not _wrong_ per se, but it's not super precise, either.

The problem is, it's quite valid to have these node_start/spanned ranges
overlap between two or more nodes on some hardware. So, if the desired
purpose is to map nodes to DIMMs, then this can only accomplish this on
_some_ hardware, not all. It would be completely useless for that
purpose for some configurations.

Seems like the better way to do this would be to expose the DIMMs
themselves in some way, and then map _those_ back to a node.
