The only caller of arch_scale_smt_capacity is now an arch_ function
itself; which makes it entirely redundant, no?

Also, sched_feat() and default_scale_smt_capability() aren't available
to arch implementations of this function and can thus not retain
semantics.

Seeing how we currently don't have any arch_scale_smt_capacity
implementations other than the default we can easily replace it entirely
with something like:

unsigned long __weak arch_scale_cpu_capacity()
{
if ((sd->flags & SD_SHARE_CPUCAPACITY) && (sd->span_weight > 1))
return sd->smt_gain / sd->span_weight;

return SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE;
}

Hmm?
