so just having read a bunch of the libvirt driver numa code, I have a
concern. At first I thought it was a little thing, but I am starting
to think its more of a big deal...

We use the term "cells" to describe numa cells. However, that term has
a specific meaning in nova, and I worry that overloading the term is

(Yes, I know the numa people had it first, but hey).

So, what do people think about trying to move the numa code to use
something like "numa cell" or "numacell" based on context?
