Thanks for trying it out.

I think this is required for get_group() to work properly. Otherwise,
successive get_group() calls may override (and break) the sd->groups
linking as you initially reported.

In your example, for MC level we have

tl->mask(3) == 3-7
tl->mask(4) == 4-7

Which partially overlaps, causing the relinking of '7->3' to '7->4'. Valid
configurations would be

wholly disjoint:
tl->mask(3) == 0-3
tl->maks(4) == 4-7

tl->mask(3) == 3-7
tl->mask(4) == 3-7

Ideally I'd like to be able to reproduce this locally first (TBH I'd like
to get my first suggestion to work since it's less intrusive). Could you
share how you were able to trigger this? Dietmar's been trying to reproduce
this with qemu but I don't think he's there just yet.
