Energy-aware scheduling should only operate when the system is not
overutilized. There must be cpu time available to place tasks based on
utilization in an energy-aware fashion, i.e. to pack tasks on
energy-efficient cpus without harming the overall throughput.

In case the system operates above this tipping point the tasks have to
be placed based on task and cpu load in the classical way of spreading
tasks across as many cpus as possible.

The point in which a system switches from being not overutilized to
being overutilized is called the tipping point.

Such a tipping point indicator on a sched domain as the system
boundary is introduced here. As soon as one cpu of a sched domain is
overutilized the whole sched domain is declared overutilized as well.
A cpu becomes overutilized when its utilization is higher that 80%
(capacity_margin) of its capacity.

The implementation takes advantage of the shared sched domain which is
shared across all per-cpu views of a sched domain level. The new
overutilized flag is placed in this shared sched domain.

Load balancing is skipped in case the energy model is present and the
sched domain is not overutilized because under this condition the
predominantly load-per-capacity driven load-balancer should not
interfere with the energy-aware wakeup placement based on utilization.

In case the total utilization of a sched domain is greater than the
total sched domain capacity the overutilized flag is set at the parent
sched domain level to let other sched groups help getting rid of the
overutilization of cpus.

catch up with the discussion)

I think you ought to go have a look at the end of
kernel/sched/topology.c:sd_init(), where it says:

	/*
	 * For all levels sharing cache; connect a sched_domain_shared
	 * instance.
	 */
	if (sd->flags & SD_SHARE_PKG_RESOURCES) {
		sd->shared = *per_cpu_ptr(sdd->sds, sd_id);
		atomic_inc(&sd->shared->ref);
		atomic_set(&sd->shared->nr_busy_cpus, sd_weight);
	}

Because if I read all this correctly, your code assumes sd->shared
exists unconditionally, while the quoted bit only ensures it does so <=
LLC.
