Perhaps I'm missing something but, it seems to me that, when the two
conditions above are true, then we are going to destroy and rebuild
the exact same scheduling domains.

IOW, on 99% of systems where:

is_sched_load_balance(&top_cpuset)
top_cpuset.isolation_count = 0

since boot time and forever, then every time we update a value for
cpuset.cpus we keep rebuilding the same SDs.

It's not strictly related to this patch, the same already happens in
mainline based just on the first condition, but since you are extending
that optimization, perhaps you can tell me where I'm possibly wrong or
which cases I'm not considering.

I'm interested mainly because on Android systems those conditions
are always true and we see SDs rebuilds every time we write
something in cpuset.cpus, which ultimately accounts for almost all the
6-7[ms] time required for the write to return, depending on the CPU
frequency.

Cheers Patrick
