Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 38/50] s390/topology: make "topology=off"
 parameter work

From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@...ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 68cc795d1933285705ced6d841ef66c00ce98cbe ]

The "topology=off" kernel parameter is supposed to prevent the kernel
to use hardware topology information to generate scheduling domains
etc.
For an unknown reason I implemented this in a very odd way back then:
instead of simply clearing the MACHINE_HAS_TOPOLOGY flag within the
lowcore I added a second variable which indicated that topology
information should not be used. This is more than suboptimal since it
partially doesn't work.  For the fake NUMA case topology information
is still considered and scheduling domains will be created based on
this.
To fix this and to simplify the code get rid of the extra variable and
implement the "topology=off" case like it is done for other features.
