Subject[PATCH] sched: arch_reinit_sched_domains() must destroy domains to force rebuild
Date
What I realized recently is that calling rebuild_sched_domains() in
arch_reinit_sched_domains() by itself is not enough when cpusets are enabled.
partition_sched_domains() code is trying to avoid unnecessary domain rebuilds
and will not actually rebuild anything if new domain masks match the old ones.

What this means is that doing
echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_mc_power_savings
on a system with cpusets enabled will not take affect untill something changes
in the cpuset setup (ie new sets created or deleted).
This patch fixes restore correct behaviour where domains must be rebuilt in
order to enable MC powersaving flags.

Test on quad-core Core2 box with both CONFIG_CPUSETS and !CONFIG_CPUSETS.
Also tested on dual-core Core2 laptop. Lockdep is happy and things are working
as expected.

Ingo, please apply.
btw We also need to push my other cpuset patch into mainline. We currently
calling rebuild_sched_domains() without cgroup lock which is bad. When I made
original sched: changes the assumption was that cpuset patch will also go in.
I'm talking about
"cpuset: Rework sched domains and CPU hotplug handling"
It's been ACKed by Paul has been in the -tip for awhile now.
