I never knew of anyone who ran Linux on a NUMA-Q for anything other than
kernel development. The systems that we had are, as far as I know, all
unplugged and scrapped somewhere.

The Summits were sold for fairly brief periods of time, and they're
surely not going to be supported hardware on enterprise distros from
here on out. Chris McDermott would know for sure.
