Hmm _this_ is what requires us to move the thing to a whole separate
iteration. Because when we build the groups, the domains are already
constructed, so that was right.

So the moving crud around wasn't the primary fix, this is.

With the fact that sched_group_cpus(sd->groups) ==
sched_domain_span(sibling->child) (if child exists) established in the
previous patches, could we not simplify this like the below?

Subject: sched/topology: Fix overlapping sched_group_mask
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>
Date: Tue Apr 25 14:00:49 CEST 2017

The point of sched_group_mask is to select those CPUs from
sched_group_cpus that can actually arrive at this balance domain.

The current code gets it wrong, as can be readily demonstrated with a
topology like:

node 0 1 2 3
0: 10 20 30 20
1: 20 10 20 30
2: 30 20 10 20
3: 20 30 20 10

Where (for example) domain 1 on CPU1 ends up with a mask that includes
CPU0:

[] CPU1 attaching sched-domain:
[] domain 0: span 0-2 level NUMA
[] groups: 1 (mask: 1), 2, 0
[] domain 1: span 0-3 level NUMA
[] groups: 0-2 (mask: 0-2) (cpu_capacity: 3072), 0,2-3 (cpu_capacity: 3072)

This causes sched_balance_cpu() to compute the wrong CPU and
consequently should_we_balance() will terminate early resulting in
missed load-balance opportunities.

The fixed topology looks like:

[] CPU1 attaching sched-domain:
[] domain 0: span 0-2 level NUMA
[] groups: 1 (mask: 1), 2, 0
[] domain 1: span 0-3 level NUMA
[] groups: 0-2 (mask: 1) (cpu_capacity: 3072), 0,2-3 (cpu_capacity: 3072)
