Hwloc's support on Linux is mostly linux-dependant. With the /sys stuff
being hardware-independant, it should in principle "just work" on s390,
provided the s390-specific part announces proper things in /sys. We
don't have our own s390, so we couldn't test. The Debian s390 testboxes
only announce 2 processors, so there's not much topology to discover
there, but it basically works, announcing the 2 processors :) I wonder
what would be discovered on bigger machines. In any case, if you have
any chance of running gather-topology on such beast, let us know :)
