There's a minor problem here, which I didn't think of when I was
discussing this with you earlier.

(max_cpus - 1) in the last slot isn't quite right, because we need the
maximum vcpu id here.  Because of (complicated, historical) reasons we
don't allocate the vcpu ids contiguously in all cases, so it could be
larger than max_cpus - 1.

But, we don't actually need to handle that case.  We give 5 levels of
associativity on cpus, but only 4 on memory.  Having a quick look at
the NUMA code on the guest side, I'm pretty sure it's ok if we only
give maximum values to depth 4 here, so we can just drop the last cell
here.
