Along the same lines, I am considering adding numacell memory
information to this output. Some options for formatted output would
be:

<topology>
  <cells num='2'>
    <cell id='0' memoryKB='8386504'>
      <cpus num='8'>
        <cpu id='1' sibling='9'/>
         .
         .
      </cpus>
    </cell>
  </cells>
</topology>


or, more similar to the guest xml

<topology>
  <cells num='2'>
    <cell id='0'>
      <memory unit='KiB'>8386504</memory>
      <cpus num='8'>
        <cpu id='1' sibling='9'/>
         .
         .
      </cpus>
    </cell>
  </cells>
</topology>


There are a lot of options here for how to format the output. I don't
anticipate the unit of KiB to change since that is what is in the
/sys/devices/system/node/node0/meminfo files.


Thoughts?
