One patch per email, please. So, separate patch = separate email. And
that means separate patch description, which would have avoided this
chain of emails in the first place.

Anyway, back to your original question:

I think we have machines with discontigous memory (due to I/O holes)
without having NUMA support on the machines, i.e. some POWER3/RS64

Unfortunately I don't have such a machine with sufficient memory
configured to take a look at.

Joel just commented your patch and acked it, with the same build error
in it. I guess that got me confused.
