Performance Co-Pilot http://oss.sgi.com/projects/pcp  in particular,
pmshub, shubstats and linkstat. Numerous other users include anything
that needs knowledge of numa topology/interconnect in order to perform

I don't quite grok "might be worse". But in any case, I can add something
that's IA64_SGI_SN2 specific to arch/ia64/Kconfig if that is what you mean.
