Hmm, ok, that's 160 bytes more per node. And on !Rome it is wasted. Oh
well, let's remain conservative then and allocate it only where needed.

Btw, upon a second look, compute_num_umcs() can be made part of
get_hardware_info() instead of having this as a separate function which
gets called only once before probe_one_instance().
