From: "Gautham R. Shenoy" <ego@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Each of the SMT4 cores forming a big-core are more or less independent
units. Thus when multiple tasks are scheduled to run on the fused
core, we get the best performance when the tasks are spread across the
pair of SMT4 cores.

This patch achieves this by setting the SMT level mask to correspond
to the smallcore sibling mask on big-core systems.

With this patch, the SMT sched-domain with SMT=8,4,2 on big-core
systems are as follows:

1) ppc64_cpu --smt=8

 CPU0 attaching sched-domain(s):
  domain-0: span=0,2,4,6 level=SMT
   groups: 0:{ span=0 cap=294 }, 2:{ span=2 cap=294 },
           4:{ span=4 cap=294 }, 6:{ span=6 cap=294 }
 CPU1 attaching sched-domain(s):
  domain-0: span=1,3,5,7 level=SMT
   groups: 1:{ span=1 cap=294 }, 3:{ span=3 cap=294 },
           5:{ span=5 cap=294 }, 7:{ span=7 cap=294 }

2) ppc64_cpu --smt=4

 CPU0 attaching sched-domain(s):
  domain-0: span=0,2 level=SMT
   groups: 0:{ span=0 cap=589 }, 2:{ span=2 cap=589 }
 CPU1 attaching sched-domain(s):
  domain-0: span=1,3 level=SMT
   groups: 1:{ span=1 cap=589 }, 3:{ span=3 cap=589 }

3) ppc64_cpu --smt=2
   SMT domain ceases to exist as each domain consists of just one
   group.
