[CentOS-virt] NUMA placement failed, performance might be affected

I just did a yum update on a CentOS 7 / Xen 4.6 server which took me from kernel-3.18.34-20.el7.x86_64 -> kernel-3.18.44-20.el7.x86_64

After rebooting, the following notice is printed immediately upon xl create'ing a domain: libxl: notice: libxl_numa.c:499:libxl__get_numa_candidate: NUMA placement failed, performance might be affected


Indeed performance is significantly degraded. This issue didn't happen on the older kernel. Any ideas where it came from or how it can be fixed?
