But I suspect it flags a real issue. Shutting it up isn't the issue as
such. There could be a concurrent sched domain rebuild while we do this
setup, and if we free that domain while we're looking at it, bad things
happen.

... I wonder what brought this failure to pass now. This code has been
like this a for a long time.
