select_idle_cpu() is called only if no idle core could be found in the LLC by
select_idle_core().

So, would it be better here to just do the cookie equality check directly
instead of calling the sched_core_cookie_match() helper?  More so, because
select_idle_sibling() is a fastpath.

AFAIR, that's what v4 did:

                if (available_idle_cpu(cpu))
#ifdef CONFIG_SCHED_CORE
                        if (sched_core_enabled(cpu_rq(cpu)) &&
                            (p->core_cookie == cpu_rq(cpu)->core->core_cookie))
                                break;
#else
                        break;
#endif


Thoughts? thanks,
