Bug Description

Several patches have gone upstream recently that improve powerpc's handling of memoryless nodes. These can be present in guests, but more importantly can be seen in Power8 host/PowerNV systems due to the manufacturing population of DIMMs.

Upstream commits:

81c98869faa5f3a9457c93efef908ef476326b31 (kthread: ensure locality of task_struct allocations)

844e4d66f4ec3b6b6d3bcfcfba3ade2b962771e2 (slub: search partial list on numa_mem_id(), instead of numa_node_id())

8c272261194dfda11cc046fbe808e052f6f284eb (powerpc/numa: Enable USE_PERCPU_NUMA_NODE_ID)

64bb80d87f01ec01c76863b61b457e0904387f2f (powerpc/numa: Enable CONFIG_HAVE_MEMORYLESS_NODES)

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

I verified that the performance is the equivalent of upstream with 3.13.0-32-generic. There is still work to be done upstream but this gets us quite a bit further.
