Will fix all above

The parent->cpu_mask always is the parent->cpus_valid_mask if i understand
right. With monitor group, the cpu is present is always present in "one"
ctrl_mon group and one mon_group. And the mon group can have only cpus in its
parent. May be it needs a comment? (its explaind in the documentation patch).

# mkdir /sys/fs/resctrl/p1
# mkdir /sys/fs/resctrl/p1/mon_groups/m1
# echo 5-10 > /sys/fs/resctr/p1/cpus_list
Say p1 has RMID 2
cpus 5-10 have RMID 2

# echo 5-6 > /sys/fs/resctrl/p1/mon_groups/m1/cpus_list
cpus 5-6 have RMID 3
cpus 7-10 have RMID 2

# cat /sys/fs/resctrl/p1/cpus_list
5-10

This is because when we query the data for p1 it adds its own data (RMID 2) and
all the data for its child mon groups (hence all cpus from 5-10).

But
>> + cpumask_or(&pr->cpu_mask, &pr->cpu_mask, tmpmask);
can be removed because it does nothing like you suggest as the parent already
has these cpus. We just need the update_rmid_closid(tmpmask, pr)

When CAT is unavailable we cannot create any ctrl_mon groups.

Will fix.

Because of same reason above, each cpu is present in "one" ctrl_mon group and
may be present in "one" mon group - we need to clear both..
