arm64: topology: divorce MC scheduling domain from core_siblings

Now that we have an accurate view of the physical topology
we need to represent it correctly to the scheduler. Generally MC
should equal the LLC in the system, but there are a number of
special cases that need to be dealt with.

In the case of NUMA in socket, we need to assure that the sched
domain we build for the MC layer isn't larger than the DIE above it.
Similarly for LLC's that might exist in cross socket interconnect or
directory hardware we need to assure that MC is shrunk to the socket
or NUMA node.

This patch builds a sibling mask for the LLC, and then picks the
smallest of LLC, socket siblings, or NUMA node siblings, which
gives us the behavior described above. This is ever so slightly
different than the similar alternative where we look for a cache
layer less than or equal to the socket/NUMA siblings.

The logic to pick the MC layer affects all arm64 machines, but
only changes the behavior for DT/MPIDR systems if the NUMA domain
is smaller than the core siblings (generally set to the cluster).
Potentially this fixes a possible bug in DT systems, but really
it only affects ACPI systems where the core siblings is correctly
set to the socket siblings. Thus all currently available ACPI
systems should have MC equal to LLC, including the NUMA in socket
machines where the LLC is partitioned between the NUMA nodes.
