That's true functional-wise but I think that this is not the reason why
the code in get_group()/build_sched_groups() isn't working correctly any
more with this set-up.

Like I said above the cpu_cpupower_flags() is just bogus and I only
added it to illustrate the issue (Shouldn't have used
SD_SHARE_POWERDOMAIN in the first place).
Essentially what I want to do is bind an SD_SHARE_*FOO* flag to the GDIE
related sd's of CPU2/3/4 and not to the DIE related sd's of CPU0/1.

I thought so far that I can achieve that by getting rid of GDIE sd level
for CPU0/1 simply by choosing the cpu_foo_mask() function in such a way
that it returns the same cpu mask as its child sd level (MC) and of DIE
sd level for CPU2/3/4 because it returns the same cpu mask as its child
sd level (GDIE) related cpu mask function. This will let sd degenerate
do it's job of folding sd levels which it does. The only problem I have
is that the groups are not created correctly any more.

I don't see right now how the flag SD_SHARE_FOO affects the code in
get_group()/build_sched_groups().

Think of SD_SHARE_FOO of something I would like to have for all sd's of
CPU's of cluster 1 (CPU2/3/4) and not on cluster 0 (CPU0/1) in the sd
level where each CPU sees two groups (group0 containing CPU0/1 and
group1 containing CPU2/3/4 or vice versa) (GDIE/DIE) .
