    Diwakar, But ASYM_PACKING will lead to more task migrations and also it
    relies on the periodic load balancing to correct it.

    Perhaps we should expose this info more natively and prefer the lower
    siblings during task wakeup etc. And perhaps be more aggressive in
    moving the load to lower siblings etc.

    Can you elaborate more about the power-saving scenario and what causes
    the power-savings etc to better understand the problem.

    thanks,
    suresh
