I tried a few other combinations including setting nr=2 exactly with the
folding of select_idle_cpu and select_idle_core but still get regressions
with hackbench. Also tried adding select_idle_smt (just for the sake of it
since my patch retained it) but still see regressions with hackbench. In
all these tests Uperf and Oracle DB tests gave similar improvements as my
orignal patch. This kind of indicates that sequential cpu ids hopping cores
(x86) being important for hackbench. In that case can we consciously hop
core for all archs and search limited nr cpus? We can get the diff of
cpu id of target cpu and first cpu in the smt core and apply the diff to
the cpu id of each smt core to get the cpu we want to check. But we need a
O(1) way of zeroing out all the cpus of smt core from the parent mask.
This will work in both kind of enumeration, whether contiguous or
interleaved. Thoughts?
