[libvirt] PATCH: Make UML/LXC drivers robust with bad NUMA data



commit e2052c24f39c71b3b8e92a983287f72176d73c77
Author: Daniel P. Berrange <berrange redhat com>
Date:   Thu Aug 13 11:56:31 2009 +0100

    Make LXC / UML drivers robust against NUMA topology brokenness
    
    Some kernel versions expose broken NUMA topology for some machines.
    This causes the LXC/UML drivers to fail to start. QEMU driver was
    already fixed for this problem
