Hello I can fix the documentation to say that the function always suceeds and returns the virtual depth for NUMA/IO/Misc.
I don't understand your third sentence. If by "actual depth", you mean the depth of a (normal) parent where NUMA are attached (for instance the depth of Package if NUMAs are attached to Packages), see hwloc_get_memory_parents_depth(). However, you may have NUMA/IO/Misc attached to parents at different depths, so it doesn't make much sense in the general case. What do you use this function for? I thought of removing it from 2.0 because it's hard to define a "usual" order for object types (for instance L3 can be above or below NUMA for different modern platforms).
