Ok, I see. What I'd see is instead of using the MISC type for numa
groups, introducing a NUMAGROUP object type. In that case, ignoring
NUMA but not NUMAGROUP makes sense and would provide that result.
However, with a better version of hwloc you may still get
System -> Numagroup -> Numagroup -> Core
because e.g. thanks to more precise distances hwloc has noticed that the
first Numagroup level itself is hierarchical, forming another Numagroup
Introduce several numagroup types? How many? That's not easy to
