Would you perhaps have meant to identify some shared cache domain?

In the scheduler core code we have (for CONFIG_SMP):

static int ttwu_share_cache(int this_cpu, int that_cpu);

which returns true if this and that share a cache and false otherwise.
Would that suffice or do you need a slightly different form? That is, we
should provide you with some API and avoid you having to poke around
with CONFIG_SCHED* and topology bits methinks.
