    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.
