Subject: [PATCH 2/2] sched/topology: Expose numa_mask set/clear functions to arch

With commit 051f3ca02e46 ("sched/topology: Introduce NUMA identity node
sched domain") scheduler introduces an new numa level. However on shared
lpars like powerpc, this extra sched domain creation can lead to
repeated rcu stalls, sometimes even causing unresponsive systems on
boot. On such stalls, it was noticed that init_sched_groups_capacity()
(sg != sd->groups is always true).

INFO: rcu_sched self-detected stall on CPU

Allow arch to set and clear masks corresponding to numa sched domain.
