Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] arm64: defconfig: enable CONFIG_SCHED_SMT
Date
The (CFS) scheduler has some extra logic catering to systems with SMT, but
that logic won't be compiled in unless the above config is set.

Note that the SMT-centric codepaths are gated by the sched_smt_present
static key, and the SMT sched_domains will only survive if the platform has
SMT. As such, the only impact on !SMT platforms should be a slightly
bigger kernel - no behavioural change.

Distro kernels already enable it, which makes sense since there already are
things like ThunderX2 out in the wild. Enable it for the defconfig.

Some deltas
===========

FWIW my ELF symbol table diff looks something like this:

------------------------------------------------------------------
DELTA SUM +820

As for the sched_domains, this is on a hikey960:

before:
$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/sched_domain/cpu*/domain*/name | sort | uniq
DIE
MC

after:
$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/sched_domain/cpu*/domain*/name | sort | uniq
DIE
MC
