We're still don't have dynamic build time configuration system.
To make get/set_mempolicy work we need to include <numaif.h>
and have libnuma for successful linkage.
This means that the only option to not have libnuma as dependency
is to return back configuration option RTE_LIBRTE_EAL_NUMA_AWARE_HUGEPAGES
as it was in the first version of the patch.
There is, actually, the third option (besides 2 already described):
3. Return back config option RTE_LIBRTE_EAL_NUMA_AWARE_HUGEPAGES
from the first version of the patch and *enable* it by default.
In this case anyone who doesn't want to have libnuma as dependency
will be able to disable the config option manually.
Thomas, what do you think? Bruce? Sergio?
P.S. We're always able to implement syscall wrappers by hands without any
external dependencies, but I don't think it's a good decision.
