Tim,

x86_has_numa_in_package is being set in set_cpu_sibling_map() with the
same criteria you describe: (!topology_same_node(c, o) && match_die(c,
o))

Skylake in SNC mode takes that path and it gets set correctly, so I'm
thinking and seeing that the setting of it in match_llc() is redundant.

The intent of the patch is to skip the topology_sane() check to avoid
the warning message it spits out at boot time.

This has me wondering if, aside from it being redundant, if it may be
incorrect? Should we set that boolean based on vendor/model alone in
match_llc(). I guess I need to understand what happens w a Skylake that
doesn't have SNC turned on. I can try that configuration next.

Thanks for reviewing!
