==SRAT==
[http://lwn.net/Articles/7177/ Linux in 2009] gained support for parsing of the BIOS-provided SRAT table ([http://mail-index.netbsd.org/port-amd64/2009/11/23/msg001026.html NetBSD also had support] by later that year). The SRAT describes memory and processor topology, and the hot-pluggable status of all.
* Use the CONFIG_X86_64_ACPI_NUMA kernel option to enable SRAT-based enumeration of NUMA.
