There's already the asym-packing shortcut which is making naming a bit more
tedious, but should that really be named energy-aware? IMO it's just the
lowest level at which we can see asymmetry, so perhaps it should be named
as such, i.e. something like sd_asym_capa (and perhaps rename the other one
as sd_asym_pack)?
