    A wakeup driven load using sync wakeup hint will wake to siblings of the
    same core if there's too not too much imbalance though. Whether that's
    good or bad.. depends.

    If you turn SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES off in the sibling sched domain,
    wakees should be awakened CPU affine in sync hint case, or on separate
    cores in no sync hint case. They are here anyway.
