This complicates the interface between the architecture code and ... ?

This changes significantly more than just where the mbps_val array is 
hosted. It also changes how the life cycle of this array is managed. 
Previously it followed the domain, whether mba_sc was enabled or not. 
Now that it depends on mba_sc it is managed quite differently.

Could the changelog be upfront about this change and its motivation? 
Stating this would make this much easier to review and also the later 
patches where the original mbps_val initialization code is removed 
without replacement.

Could this be done symmetrically? That is, allocate in 
resctrl_online_domain() and free in resctrl_offline_domain().

struct resctrl_mba_sc?

Could this inherit some of the useful kerneldoc associated with the 
mbps_val being replaced? That is, it exists when mba_sc is enabled and 
contains bandwidth values in MBps.
