Please format your commit message by indenting the examples:

x86/resctrl: Initialize a new resource group with default MBA values

Currently, when a new resource group is created, the allocation values
of the MBA resource are not initialized and remain meaningless data.

For example:

  mkdir /sys/fs/resctrl/p1
  cat /sys/fs/resctrl/p1/schemata
  MB:0=100;1=100

  echo "MB:0=10;1=20" > /sys/fs/resctrl/p1/schemata
  cat /sys/fs/resctrl/p1/schemata
  MB:0= 10;1= 20

  rmdir /sys/fs/resctrl/p1
  mkdir /sys/fs/resctrl/p2
  cat /sys/fs/resctrl/p2/schemata
  MB:0= 10;1= 20

Therefore, when the new group is created, it is reasonable to initialize
MBA resource with default values.

Initialize the MBA resource and cache resources in separate functions."

Thx.

So all this code working on a rdt_domain *d pointer could be carved out
into a separate function called something like:

	__init_one_rdt_domain(d, ...)

and this will make the code more readable and save us at least 2
indentation levels.

Please do that in a preparatory patch.

Then, after having done that, it would be very obvious when you do this
above because you won't be calling that __init_one_rdt_domain() function
for an MBA anyway.
