    Subject[patch 24/35] x86: Set cpu_llc_id on AMD CPUs
    2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    ------------------

    From: Andreas Herrmann <andreas.herrmann3@amd.com>

    commit 99bd0c0fc4b04da54cb311953ef9489931c19c63 upstream.

    This counts when building sched domains in case NUMA information
    is not available.

    ( See cpu_coregroup_mask() which uses llc_shared_map which in turn is
    created based on cpu_llc_id. )

    Currently Linux builds domains as follows:
    (example from a dual socket quad-core system)

    CPU0 attaching sched-domain:
    domain 0: span 0-7 level CPU
    groups: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

    ...

    CPU7 attaching sched-domain:
    domain 0: span 0-7 level CPU
    groups: 7 0 1 2 3 4 5 6

    Ever since that is borked for multi-core AMD CPU systems.
    This patch fixes that and now we get a proper:

    CPU0 attaching sched-domain:
    domain 0: span 0-3 level MC
    groups: 0 1 2 3
    domain 1: span 0-7 level CPU
    groups: 0-3 4-7

    ...

    CPU7 attaching sched-domain:
    domain 0: span 4-7 level MC
    groups: 7 4 5 6
    domain 1: span 0-7 level CPU
    groups: 4-7 0-3

    This allows scheduler to assign tasks to cores on different sockets
    (i.e. that don't share last level cache) for performance reasons.
