No idea. I did add some debug code that indicated resctrl_online_cpu() found 3 resources in for_each_capable_rdt_resource(r). Only the first one set r->mon_capable.

Very likely. Should be easy to confirm.

I am not sure about that.

That should work too, but it is so perfect align with the r->alloc_capable check above, so I am not sure it is a good idea to break it.

Because I am not sure about the second one. It was never executed due to “cpu != d->mbm_work_cpu“ even after offlining all CPUs except cpu 0 and never cause anything wrong yet, so I could not test it yet, but I can see why it might need a similar check too if d->mbm_work_cpu is non-zero and could trigger the same imbalance.
