If you look at the other mail that I sent, the system boots to its regular
state with a certain topology. The hypervisor might detect and push topology
updates after the system has been booted and initialized. This topology
update can happen much much later after boot. We boot with a particular
topology and a later point of time, the topology update event occurs.

This was the same in my previous posting too. Before the topology update
happened, all the cpus would be in SMT, DIE. The topology updates can be
disabled using a kernel parameter topology_updates=off. Its documented under
https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/admin-guide/kernel-parameters.html as

topology_updates= [KNL, PPC, NUMA] Format: {off} Specify if the kernel
should ignore (off) topology updates sent by the hypervisor to this
LPAR.

and is not something new in powerpc.
