Hi Cole,

though not entirely thrilled by the very wordy format, I'm fine with 
this patch as a starting point.

There is a sentence from the original patch in the commit message that's 
no longer applicable: "NUMA distances can be specified when configuring 
NUMA cells by adding one or more <cell:distance> pairs for each NUMA 
cell, defining the distance from the cell to itself and to the other 
NUMA cells.".
