[RFC v4 7/8] sched/fair: Bound non idle core search within LLC domain

From: Parth Shah
Date: Thu Jul 25 2019 - 14:03:51 EST

Specify the method which returns sched domain to limit the
search for a non idle core. By default, limit the search in LLC domain
which usually includes all the cores across the system.

The select_non_idle_core searches for the non idle cores across whole
system. But in the systems with multiple NUMA domains, the Turbo frequency
can be sustained within the NUMA domain without being affected from other
NUMA. For such case, arch_turbo_domain can be tuned to change domain for
non idle core search.
