Fair enough; that would need making the computation depends on more
thing, but that shouldn't be too hard.

Cute; that's similar to the whole Intel sub-numa-cluster stuff then;
perhaps update the comment that goes with x86_has_numa_in_package ?
Currently that only mentions AMD Magny-Cours which is a few generations
ago.

OK, so at max nodes you still have at least 2 LLCs per node.

Yes, it would be in the same place as the current imb_numa_nr
calculation, so child would be the largest domain having
SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES, aka. LLC.

s/min/max/

Which is basically something like:

for_each (sd in NUMA):
llc_per_group = child->span / llc->span;
nr_group = sd->span / child->span;
imb = max(1, llc_per_group / nr_group);

Right.

Something that might work:

imb = 0;
imb_span = 1;

for_each_sd(sd) {
child = sd->child;

if (!(sd->flags & SD_SPR) && child && (child->flags & SD_SPR)) {

imb = /* initial magic */
imb_span = sd->span;
sd->imb = imb;

} else if (imb) {
sd->imb = imb * (sd->span / imb_span);
}
}

Where we calculate the initial imbalance for the LLC boundary, and then
increase that for subsequent domains based on how often that boundary sd
fits in it. That gives the same progression you have, but also works for
NODE==LLC I think.
