The problem persists [1] [2]:
/usr/src/ltp/testcases/kernel/syscalls/set_mempolicy/set_mempolicy04.c:105: undefined reference to `numa_allocate_nodemask'
/usr/src/ltp/testcases/kernel/syscalls/set_mempolicy/set_mempolicy04.c:110: undefined reference to `numa_bitmask_setbit'
/usr/src/ltp/testcases/kernel/syscalls/set_mempolicy/set_mempolicy04.c:112: undefined reference to `set_mempolicy'

+ other LTP libraries are hidden in some subdirectories (which might be
confusing), but I like there is not lib/ and lib<foo>/ in root directory.
