We might add a check of the child in sd_init to ensure that the child
has at least some properties of the current level.
I mean that if a level has got the SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES flag, its
child must also have it. The same for SD_SHARE_CPUPOWER and
SD_ASYM_PACKING.

so we can add something like the below in sd_init

child_flags = SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES | SD_SHARE_CPUPOWER | SD_ASYM_PACKING
flags = sd->flags & child_flags
if (sd->child)
child_flags &= sd->child->flags
child_flags &= flags
if (flags != child_flags)
pr_info("The topology description looks strange \n");
