Scott,

I've got the exact same CPUs (Dell PowerEdge R815). You'll find the
NUMA info is detected node info is detected incorrectly. Oddly we have
different data detected. What kernel are you running?

with libvirt 1.0.1
root host ~ # virsh nodeinfo
CPU model:           x86_64
CPU(s):              64
CPU frequency:       2100 MHz
CPU socket(s):       1
Core(s) per socket:  64
Thread(s) per core:  1
NUMA cell(s):        1
Memory size:         132013200 KiB

virsh capabilities is a bit "smarter" but still not 100%. It sees 8
NUMA nodes and puts the CPUs in the correct nodes but still detects
the CPU incorrectly.
