IMHO, we require only that higher topology levels are supersets of lower
levels, not strict (proper) supersets.

AFAICS, the patch itself requires only supersets, i.e. on ARM TC2 with
the following change in cpu_corepower_mask:

 const struct cpumask *cpu_corepower_mask(int cpu)
 {
-       return &cpu_topology[cpu].thread_sibling;
+       return &cpu_topology[cpu].core_sibling;
 }

I get:

...
build_sched_domain: cpu: 0 level: GMC cpu_map: 0-4 tl->mask: 0-1
build_sched_domain: cpu: 0 level: MC cpu_map: 0-4 tl->mask: 0-1
build_sched_domain: cpu: 0 level: DIE cpu_map: 0-4 tl->mask: 0-4
...

without hitting the newly introduced pr_err's.

This fixup will (probably) heal the Bruno's issue with it's wrong
cpu_coregroup_mask() function.

If I exchange cpu_corepower_mask with cpu_coregroup_mask in arm_topology[]

 static struct sched_domain_topology_level arm_topology[] = {
 #ifdef CONFIG_SCHED_MC
-       { cpu_corepower_mask, cpu_corepower_flags, SD_INIT_NAME(GMC) },
-       { cpu_coregroup_mask, cpu_core_flags, SD_INIT_NAME(MC) },
+       { cpu_coregroup_mask, cpu_corepower_flags, SD_INIT_NAME(GMC) },
+       { cpu_corepower_mask, cpu_core_flags, SD_INIT_NAME(MC) },
 #endif

I get:

...
build_sched_domain: cpu: 0 level: GMC cpu_map: 0-4 tl->mask: 0-1
build_sched_domain: cpu: 0 level: MC cpu_map: 0-4 tl->mask: 0
BUG: arch topology borken
     the GMC domain not a subset of the MC domain
build_sched_domain: cpu: 0 level: DIE cpu_map: 0-4 tl->mask: 0-4
...

cat /proc/schedstat
...

DIE

so MC level gets changed to mask 0-1.
