Cute! So we're building groups for @cpu, for a domain on the same @cpu,
but none of the groups actually span this @cpu. This would imply the
domain doesn't actually contain @cpu.

It would avoid exploding, but nothing in the above situation is anywhere
near correct.

Does something like the below give any clues as to how we got there?
