Hi Peter,

Thanks for the quick review.

I would need each cpu within a partitioned sched domain to point to
the _same_ preferred wakeup cpu. The preferred CPU will be updated in
one place in find_busiest_group() and used by wake_idle.

If I have a per cpu value, then updating it for each cpu in the
partitioned sched domain will be slow.

The actual number of preferred_wakeup_cpu will be equal to the number
of partitions. If there are no partitions in the sched domains, then
then all per-cpu pointers will point to the same variable.

Will fix this. Did not look for such a routine :)

Will fix this too.

Thanks,
