Starting an HVM guest (although I don't suppose it is HVM specific) on a
none NUMA system I get this:

        libxl: debug: libxl_numa.c:270:libxl__get_numa_candidates: only 1 node. 
no placement required
        libxl: detail: libxl_dom.c:175:numa_place_domain: 0 NUMA placement 
candidates found
        libxl: notice: libxl_dom.c:180:numa_place_domain: NUMA placement 
failed, performance might be affected
this being a non-NUMA system I suppose it is not the end of the world.
It'd be nice to avoid the warning though -- perhaps
libxl__get_numa_candidates should either not special case single node
systems or it should manually return the trivial candidate set?
