OK, I think I see what's happening.

AFAICT cacheinfo.c does *NOT* set l2c_id on AMD/Hygon hardware, this
means it's set to BAD_APICID.

This then results in match_l2c() to never match. And as a direct
consequence set_cpu_sibling_map() will generate cpu_l2c_shared_mask with
just the one CPU set.

And we have the above result and things come unstuck if we assume:
SMT <= L2 <= LLC

Now, the big question, how to fix this... Does AMD have means of
actually setting l2c_id or should we fall back to using match_smt() for
l2c_id == BAD_APICID ?
