IIRC, we discussed that point on a former version. The patch changes
only the behavior of capacity_orig but the behavior of capacity stays
unchanged as all archs can already set the capacity whereas the
capacity_orig was configurable only if the SD_SHARE_CPUCAPACITY was
set in the sched_domain. This is no more the case with this patch
which creates arch_scale_cpu_capacity for setting capacity_orig.

Peter has proposed to remove all those checks and to keep only the
default behavior because no arch uses arch_scale_smt_capacity.
Then, ARCH_CAPACITY is still used in update_cpu_capacity
