We don't need to print the warning if
  sockets * cores * threads > max_cpus,
because it already triggers error_report()/exit() below.  I
suggest reordering the checks:

    if (sockets * cores * threads > max_cpus) {
        error_report(...);
        exit(1);
    }
    if (sockets * cores * threads != max_cpus) {
        warn_report(...)
    }
