We used to create the sched_groups of sched_domain[n] of node[m] by
1. local group: sched_domain[n-1] of node[m]
2. remote group: sched_domain[n-1] of node[m]'s siblings
in the same level.
Since the sched_domain[n-1] of a part of node[m]'s siblings are able
to cover the whole span of sched_domain[n] of node[m], there is no
necessity to scan over all siblings of node[m], once sched_domain[n]
of node[m] has been covered, we can stop making more sched_groups. So
the number of sched_groups is small.

So historically, the code has never tried to make sched_groups result
in equal size. And it permits the overlapping of local group and remote
groups.

One issue we are facing in original code is that once the topology
gets to 3-hops NUMA, sched_domain[n-1] of node[m]'s siblings might
span out of the range of sched_domain[n] of node[m]. Here my approach
is trying to find a descanted sibling to build remote groups and fix
this issue for those machines with this problem. So it keeps those
machines without 3-hops issues untouched.

Valentin sent another RFC to break up all remote groups to include
the remote node only instead of using sched_domain[n-1] of siblings,
this will eliminate the problem from the first beginning. One side
effect is that it changes all machines including those machines w/o
3-hops issue by creating much more remote sched_groups. So we both
agree we can get started from descanted sibling(grandchild) approach
first.

What you are advising seems to be breaking up local sched_group,
it will create much more local groups. It sounds like a huge change
even beyond the scope of the original issue we are trying to fix :-)

Sure, thanks!
