SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 13/13] arm64: topology: divorce MC scheduling domain from core_siblings

No. core_siblings is defined as the list of cores that have the same
physical_package_id (see the doc of sysfs topology files), and LLC can
be smaller than that.
Example with E5v3 with cluster-on-die (two L3 per package, core_siblings
is twice larger than L3 cpumap):

On AMD EPYC, you even have up to 8 LLC per package.
