Subject: [PATCH v5 11/17] sched/topology: Mark SD_PREFER_SIBLING as SDF_NEEDS_GROUPS

SD_PREFER_SIBLING is currently considered in sd_parent_degenerate() but not
in sd_degenerate(). It too hinges on load balancing, and thus won't have
any effect when set on a domain with a single group. Add it to
SD_DEGENERATE_GROUPS_MASK.
