Could you elaborate a little more on the failure symptom?
If I understand correctly, the error you described was due to
r->mon_capable set to false while is_mbm_enabled() returns true?
Which means on this platform rdt_mon_features is non zero?
And in get_rdt_mon_resources() it will invoke rdt_get_mon_l3_config(),
however the only possible failure to do not set r->mon_capable is that it
failed in dom_data_init() due to kcalloc() failure? Then the logic in
get_rdt_resources() is that it will ignore the return error if rdt allocate
feature is supported on this platform? If this is the case, the r->mon_capable
is not an indicator for whether the overflow thread has been created, right?
Can we simply remove the check of r->mon_capable in domain_add_cpu() and
invoke domain_setup_mon_state() directly?

Humm, it looks like there are two places within this function
invoked cancel_delayed_work(&d->mbm_over),
why not adding the check for both of them?

thanks,
Y
