This patch breaks my HP rx8640 box.  I suppose we have some unusual
SRAT configuration.  I'll debug it more next week.  If there's something
in particular I should look for, let me know.

Comparing old (working) with new (broken), I see:

- Number of logical nodes in system = 3
+ Number of logical nodes in system = 1

This box has two cells.  Each cell has four CPUs and some local memory.
There is also an interleaved region that uses memory from both cells.
I think firmware presents this as a logical node for each cell, plus
one for the interleaved region.

This box is configured with minimal local memory on each cell (8MB).
That's less than a granule, so we should discard it, leaving two nodes
with CPUs but no memory, and a third node with all the interleaved
memory but no CPUs.

It looks like this patch throws away two of the nodes, so I'm guessing
we discarded the nodes with CPUs and no memory.
