Hmm, actually you can end up here even if the rd isn't new. That would
happen if you call rebuild_sched_domains() after the EM has been
registered for example. At this point, you might skip
detach_destroy_domains() and build_sched_domains() from
partition_sched_domains(), but still call build_perf_domains(), which
would then attach the pd list to the current rd.

That's one reason why rcu_assign_pointer() is probably a good idea. And
it's also nice from a doc standpoint I suppose.

I assume you meant:

sched_init_domains
build_sched_domains

Is that right ?

If yes, I didn't bother calling build_perf_domains() from there because
I don't think there is a single platform out there which would have a
registered Energy Model that early in the boot process. Or maybe there
is one I don't know ?

Anyway, that is probably easy to fix, if need be.

That's right. The functions are supposed to vaguely look like existing
functions dealing with sched domains.

I kinda like the idea of keeping things consistent with the existing
code TBH. Especially because I'm terrible at naming things ... But if
there is a general agreement that I should rename everything I won't
argue.

Yep, that's a cleanup Peter requested:

Ditto :-)

The only reason I didn't do this was because I wanted to keep all the
logic to skip (or not) building things centralized in
partition_sched_domains(), simply because I find it easier to
understand.

Right, I guess it's mainly a matter of 'taste' here. So let's see ... :-)

Thanks !
