common: common code for all platforms.
intel : Intel platform-specific code.
powerpc: PowerPC platform-specific code.
test : mgen source code. mgen is a micro-test application which can generate memory access with runtime latency value among CPUs. Note that this application is only used for numatop testing!
kernel_patches: the required kernel patches.
numatop is supported on Intel Xeon processors: 5500-series, 6500/7500-series, 5600 series, E7-x8xx-series, and E5-16xx/24xx/26xx/46xx-series.
