sched: Fix select_idle_sibling() bouncing cow syndrome
If the previous CPU is cache affine and idle, select it. The current implementation simply traverses the sd_llc domain, taking the first idle CPU encountered, which walks buddy pairs hand in hand over the package, inflicting excruciating pain. 1 tbench pair (worst case) in a 10 core + SMT package: pre 15.22 MB/sec 1 procs post 252.01 MB/sec 1 procs Signed-off-by: Mike Galbraith <bitbucket@online.de> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1359371965.5783.127.camel@marge.simpson.net Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org>
