How much difference would it make if numactl --interleave=all was used
instead of using numa_interleave_memory() on the shared memory
segments? I guess that would make backend-local memory also
interleaved, but it would avoid having a dependency on libnuma in the
packages.

The numactl manpage even has this example:

        numactl --interleave=all bigdatabase arguments Run big
        database with its memory interleaved on all CPUs.

It is probably better to have native support in the postmaster, though
this could be mentioned as an alternative in the documentation.
