Thinking about misfit stealing, we can't use the sd_llc_shared's because
on big.LITTLE misfit migrations happen across LLC domains.

I was thinking of adding a misfit sparsemask to the root_domain, but
then I thought we could do the same thing for cfs_overload_cpus.

By doing so we'd have a single source of information for overloaded CPUs,
and we could filter that down during idle balance - you mentioned earlier
wanting to try stealing at each SD level. This would also let you get
rid of [PATCH 02].

The main part of try_steal() could then be written down as something like
this:

----->8-----

for_each_domain(this_cpu, sd) {
	span = sched_domain_span(sd)
		
	for_each_sparse_wrap(src_cpu, overload_cpus) {
		if (cpumask_test_cpu(src_cpu, span) &&
		    steal_from(dts_rq, dst_rf, &locked, src_cpu)) {
			stolen = 1;
			goto out;
		}
	}
}

------8<-----

We could limit the stealing to stop at the highest SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES
domain for now so there would be no behavioural change - but we'd
factorize the #ifdef SCHED_SMT bit. Furthermore, the door would be open
to further stealing.

What do you think?
