I can't be positive about this, but I think that, if we go for David's
suggestions of:
 - testing for the hypercall being actually supported,
 - calling dummy_numa_init() directly from within xen_numa_init (in 
   case something go wrong), instead of going through all the 
   alternatives from x86_numa_init()

then we can even get rid of this numa_off=0|1 all together (which is
also something David was already suggesting, AFAICR).

It would be nice to know what the issue was at the time they had to
introduce this, and whether we can get to do some testing on any of the
boxes where it was exploding.

I'll investigate more, in the meanwhile, does anyone had any clue?
