I too came to same conclusion. Did you see any issues ? Or is it
just code inspection in parity with x86 ?

Based on the commit message, had a quick look at x86 code and I agree
this shouldn't break anything. However the commit message does make
complete sense to me, especially reference to sched_cpu_starting
while smt_masks are accessed in sched_cpu_activate. Or am I missing
to understand something here ?
