This might be a good place for a comment, since unchecked kmalloc()
calls look dangerous:

/* Convert <csn, csa> to <ndoms, doms> */
doms = kmalloc(ndoms * sizeof(cpumask_t), GFP_KERNEL);
if (!doms)
goto rebuild;
dattr = kmalloc(ndoms * sizeof(struct sched_domain_attr), GFP_KERNEL);
/* dattr == NULL is ok; partition_sched_domains() can cope with it. */
