mips:
config NUMA
        bool "NUMA Support"
        depends on SYS_SUPPORTS_NUMA

x86:
config NUMA
        bool "NUMA Memory Allocation and Scheduler Support"
        depends on SMP

If you had a good reason for enabling NUMA without enabling SMP (CPU-less
memory nodes?), that'd be an interesting discussion to have.  Since your
hardware seems to have SMP by default, I'd suggest just adding the missing
'depends'.
