Hi, Ingo, Peter

I've finished the test I could figure out (NUMA, domain rebuild...) , no
issue appear on my box.

I think this patch set will benefit the system, especially when there
are huge amount of cpus.

How do you think about this idea? do you have any comments on the patch set?

Michael Wang
