We have problem of host CPU topology parsing on special
platforms (general platforms are fine). E.g.

On a AMD machine with 48 CPUs [1] (4 sockets, 6 cores indeed
[2]), VIR_NODEINFO_MAXCPUS [3] will always return 24 as the
total CPU number.

If it is returning 24, then surely we have the 'nodes' value
wrong in the virNodeInfo ? It sounds like it should have been
set to 2 (4 * 6 * 2 => 48)

/* nodeinfo->sockets is supposed to be a number of sockets per NUMA node,
* however if NUMA nodes are not composed of whole sockets, we just lie
* about the number of NUMA nodes and force apps to check capabilities XML
* for the actual NUMA topology.
if (nodeinfo->sockets % nodeinfo->nodes == 0)
nodeinfo->sockets /= nodeinfo->nodes;
nodeinfo->nodes = 1;

Jirka said this was for a fix, but I don't quite understand it,
what does the "nodeinfo.nodes" mean actually? Shouldn't it
be 8 (for the 48 CPUs machine) instead?But then we will be
wrong again with using VIR_NODEINFO_MAXCPUS.

The capabilities output:


[3] #define VIR_NODEINFO_MAXCPUS(nodeinfo)
