No, same way we always generate SMT domains when we have
CONFIG_SCHED_SMT irrespective of the hardware having SMT.

Also, an arch hook like you did is just fugly. If anything you add the
single node thing to the regular topology setup of x86_numa_in_package.

But the thing is, even for x86_numa_in_package the single node domain is
mostly redundant because the MC domain will match the NODE domain most

You have a point there; I think we should not have added the NODE thing
to sched_domains_numa_level, let me see if we can fix that sanely.
