Unlike x86, ARM only represent a core architecture.
Different platforms can integrate these cores differently in their SoCs.
The stock ARM v8 cores do not provide support for NUMA in my knowledge.
Some vendors have modified ARM cores (e.g. Cavium) to support NUMA
architecture. However that is not a common phenomena.
NUMA config should not be default for generic ARM config. It should be
enabled only for architecture supporting it.
So, *arm64-armv8a-linuxapp-gcc* config is being used by several vendors
include NXP. e.g. We use this config on several of our low end systems
(non-dpaa). Also, we use it when running in VM with virtio interfaces on
all of our different platforms (non-dpaa, dpaa1, dpaa2 etc).
