And I'll fix these and resend, since it looks like I need to :-)

"Can run" is a bad choice of words. The idea is that, if the user
specified any of those fields, NUMA node affinity will be based on that,
so we don't want automatic placement to take place. So, yes, something
like "NUMA placement won't run" or similar would have been more

Anyway, I've got an unrelated patch touching this code, which I'll
submit as soon as this one will be in. If you're fine, I'll leave it
alone in the repost of this series, and amend it there.

As said, I'm resending, so I'll also take care of the typos.
