  To: thomas, bruce.richardson, Honnappa.Nagarahalli; +Cc: dev, Juraj Linkeš

Add an option to automatically discover the host's numa and cpu counts
and use those values for a non cross-build.
Give users the option to override the per-arch default values or values
from cross files by specifying them on the command line with -Dmax_lcores
and -Dmax_numa_nodes.
