    The config that you are using has





    So we use cpu_corecroup_map() from arch/x86_64/kernel/smpboot.c in
    cpu_to_phys_group that has these nice convoluted ifdefs:

    static int cpu_to_phys_group(int cpu, const cpumask_t *cpu_map,
    struct sched_group **sg)
    int group;
    #ifdef CONFIG_SCHED_MC
    cpumask_t mask = cpu_coregroup_map(cpu);
    cpus_and(mask, mask, *cpu_map);
    group = first_cpu(mask);
    #elif defined(CONFIG_SCHED_SMT)
    cpumask_t mask = per_cpu(cpu_sibling_map, cpu);
    cpus_and(mask, mask, *cpu_map);
    group = first_cpu(mask);
    group = cpu;
    if (sg)
    *sg = &per_cpu(sched_group_phys, group);
    return group;

    and I guess that some sched domain patches resulted in an empty
    nodemask so that we end up with an invalid group number for the sched

    /* maps the cpu to the sched domain representing multi-core */
    cpumask_t cpu_coregroup_map(int cpu)
    struct cpuinfo_x86 *c = &cpu_data(cpu);
    * For perf, we return last level cache shared map.
    * And for power savings, we return cpu_core_map
    if (sched_mc_power_savings || sched_smt_power_savings)
    return per_cpu(cpu_core_map, cpu);
    return c->llc_shared_map;
