OK, I was hoping to be something during resume as this patch has nothing
executed during suspend. Do you see any change in topology before and
after this patch applied. I am interested in the output of:

$ grep "" /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/topology/*

From DT, I guess this platform doesn't have any idle states.
Does this use genpd power domains ? I see power-domains in the DT, so
asking to get more info. Do you have any out of tree patches especially
if they are depending on some topology cpumasks ?

As specified in the commit log, it won't change any behavior for DT
systems if it's non-NUMA or single node system. So I am still wondering
what could trigger this regression.
