Subject[PATCH V5 02/38] x86/intel_rdt: Introduce RDT resource group mode
Date
At this time there are no constraints on how bitmasks represented by
schemata can be associated with closids represented by resource groups.
A bitmask of one class of service can without any objections overlap
with the bitmask of another class of service.

The concept of "mode" is introduced in preparation for support of
control over whether cache regions can be shared between classes of
service. At this time the only mode reflects the current cache allocations
where all can potentially be shared.
