this is because of this patch is needed by Jiang Liu's patch set
to fix the compile error on ARM64, I'd rather do that, but It's
better to let Jiang Liu's patch goes in, and then this one, that's
why I prepared a single patch for the struct. (I mentioned it
in the cover letter)

I hope it can be reused, since the NUMA node and segment (domain)
is both needed for DT and ACPI, if it's not the case foe now, I
can surrounded them all by #ifdef CONFIG_ACPI.

Jiang, thanks for the explanation :)
