Could you try this patch ? (against 2.6.18-rc1)

I think this is very straightforward fix. booted well with my box and NUMA
emulation environment.

if SRAT had "present" bit, I'm happy ;(

empty-node-fix-fix.patch

empty-node-fix.patch uses lsapic information to detect cpu. But it has a
problem with cpu-only-node because lsapic information is not parsed before SRAT.

This patch moves parsing lsapic information before SRAT. By this, we can get
information of avilable cpus in early time.
