I'm not convinced of that.  There's no reason NUMA shouldn't work on 32-bit, it
doesn't depend on having a large amount of memory just having non-uniform
memory.  I could buy the argument that build a 32-bit NUMA system would be
wacky, but IIUC it works now and I don't see any reason to throw that away.

I can buy that CONFIG_NUMA doesn't really make sense without CONFIG_SMP, as
there's not a whole lot to do, but I also don't see any reason from disallowing
users from picking it.  arm64 allows !SMP && NUMA, and I don't see any reason
it wouldn't work just as well for us.

The only instance of node_reclaim_distance I see in mm/page_alloc.c is already
guarded with CONFIG_NUMA, but the definition of node_reclaim_distance isn't.
I'll send out some patches to add the guard which might make sorting this out
earlier, but I don't see it fixing any failures.
