Peter,

If you wish, you can use the following change log for your
abbreviated patch.

sched: Don't use cluster topology for x86 hybrid CPUs

For x86 hybrid CPUs like Alder Lake, the order of CPU selection should
be based strictly on CPU priority. Don't include cluster topology for
hybrid CPUs to avoid interference with such CPU selection order.

On Alder Lake, the Atom CPU cluster has more capacity (4 Atom CPUs)
vs Big core cluster (2 hyperthread CPUs). This could potentially
bias CPU selection towards Atom over Big Core, when Big core
CPU has higher priority.

Thanks.
