A new flag SD_SHARE_POWERDOMAIN is created to reflect whether groups of CPUs
in a sched_domain level can or not reach different power state. As an example,
the flag should be cleared at CPU level if groups of cores can be power gated
independently. This information can be used to add load balancing level between
group of CPUs than can power gate independantly. The default behavior of the
scheduler is to spread tasks across CPUs and groups of CPUs so the flag is set
into all sched_domains.
