I'm getting confusing results.
For an older dual 7351, there are 8 NUMA nodes, 4 physical cores each.
 (This already works with Slurm "Sockes=8 CorePerSocket=4".)
For a dual 7713 running Ubuntu, kernel 5.11, I get 2 NUMA nodes, one
per processor (64 physical cores, times 2).
I've seen "lscpu" output for a 7313 which also shows 8 nodes, 4 cores,
2 threads each, kernel 4.19, Debian Buster.
Does Ubuntu (or the 5.11 kernel) handle NUMA nodes difefrently?

("ThreadsPerCore=2" is clear.)
