While I do not see anything wrong with the patch, I still wonder why it
would be needed: It seems to indicate that node_online_map represents
only nodes with memory, but imo should be representing nodes with
memory or processors (leaving aside pure I/O nodes for the moment).
So perhaps there's rather a problem with the setup of node_online_map
