[RFC][PATCH 3/6] x86: use package_map instead of core_map for sysfs

From: Dave Hansen
Date: Wed Sep 17 2014 - 18:34:13 EST

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/topology/core_siblings*
files were previously built from the "cpu_core_map". That
mask is deeply connected to the sched domains internal
multi-core (MC) level, which is now become disconnected from
the actual CPU package.

We have a new "cpu_package_map" which has the sole purpose of
tracking which package the CPU is in and is unconnected to the
scheduler. We will now build those sysfs with information from
the new package map.

Note: this also realigns the sysfs files with their documentation
in Documentation/ABI.
