I can test this with:

sudo qemu-system-aarch64 -kernel ./Image -hda ./qemu-image-aarch64.img
-append 'root=/dev/vda console=ttyAMA0 loglevel=8 sched_debug' -smp
cores=8 --nographic -m 512 -cpu cortex-a53 -machine virt -numa
node,cpus=0-2,nodeid=0 -numa node,cpus=3-7,nodeid=1

and

diff --git a/drivers/base/arch_topology.c b/drivers/base/arch_topology.c
index 1eb81f113786..e941a402e5f1 100644
--- a/drivers/base/arch_topology.c
+++ b/drivers/base/arch_topology.c
@@ -465,6 +465,9 @@ void update_siblings_masks(unsigned int cpuid)
if (cpuid_topo->package_id != cpu_topo->package_id)
continue;

+ if ((cpu < 4 && cpuid > 3) || (cpu > 3 && cpuid < 4))
+ continue;
+
cpumask_set_cpu(cpuid, &cpu_topo->core_sibling);
cpumask_set_cpu(cpu, &cpuid_topo->core_sibling);

on mainline qemu. I do need the hack in update_siblings_masks() since
the topology detection via -smp cores=X, sockets=Y doesn't work yet.
