Also add the symptoms of the issue we say as Geert suggested me.
Something like:
" This often leads to system hang or crash during CPU hotplug and system
suspend operation. This is mostly observed on HMP systems where the
CPU compute capacities are different and ends up in different scheduler
domains. Since cpumask_of_node is returned instead core_sibling, the
scheduler is confused with incorrect cpumasks(e.g. one CPU in two
different sched domains at the same time) on CPU hotplug."

You can add Reported-by: Geert... ?

Looks good to me for now. I might need to tweek it a bit when I add the
support to update topology on hotplug. But that's for latter. For now,
