Think of it as not the dummy, but Xen setting the NUMA configuration up
with only a single node.

The useful bits in dummy_numa_init() are two calls to standard functions
for use by *_numa_init() calls so it just seems easier all round to just
call then directly than add a dependancy on dummy_numa_init().

From the point of view of the caller, it does the right thing.  NUMA is

I don't know what "fakenuma" is refering to.

"If I thought the hypervisor ABI was finalized..." is a pretty big "if"
so I have deliberately /not/ given an ack or a reviewed tag but I've
tried to be clear than I think the Linux side is now good enough (except
for any changes for any updates to the hypervisor ABI).
