Iirc we're talking about a square table with each dimension being the
socket count. Considering an 8-node 4-socket system, that would
still be 1024 entries, i.e. exceeding a page in size. Hence I would
think that the read-only sharing approach might still be better. Of
course, if the data amount was smaller (and by so much that even
on huge systems it's no more than a page), that would be different.
