Gating this behind this new config only leveraged by arm64 doesn't make it
very generic. Note that powerpc also has this newish "CACHE" level which
seems to overlap in function with your "CLUSTER" one (both are arch
specific, though).

I think what you are after here is an SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES domain walk,
i.e. scan CPUs by increasing cache "distance". We already have it in some
form, as we scan SMT & LLC domains; AFAICT LLC always maps to MC, except
for said powerpc's CACHE thingie.

*If* we are to generally support more levels with SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES,
we could say frob something into select_idle_cpu(). I'm thinking of
something like the incomplete, untested below:
