I think -numa option will be used to emulate the special virtual
machine to customer, and do not necessary map to host topology.
And even we map them exactly with -numa option, the movement of vcpu
threads among host nodes will break the topology initialized by -numa
So give the guest a opportunity to adjust its topology?
