I think I made the rather basic c*ckup of using a domain configured with
more memory than is in any single node.

/me dons the brown paper bag.

With your affinity patches and the domain restricted to a single node
via cpu affinity The Right Thing seems to happen.

cpupools don't seem to do this, I don't know if that is expected or not.
