AFAIC, selecting idle sibling with unmatched cookie will cause unnecessary fored-idle, unfairness and latency, compared to choosing *target* cpu.
Besides, choosing *target* cpu may be more cache friendly. So IMHO, *target* cpu may be a better choice if cookie not match, instead of idle sibling.

The above consideration is,
8893 /* Skip over this group if it has no CPUs allowed */
8894 if (!cpumask_intersects(sched_group_span(group),
8895 p->cpus_ptr))
8896 continue;
8897
It only considers the case of *p is not allowed for the whole group*, which is not enough.
If( cpumask_subset(p->cpus_ptr, sched_group_span(group)), the following sched_core_cookie_match() may choose a *wrong(not allowed)* cpu to match cookie. In that case, the matching result could be confusing and lead to wrong result.
On the other hand, considering p->cpus_ptr here could reduce the loop times and cost, if cpumask_and(p->cpus_ptr, sched_group_span(group)) is the subset of sched_group_span(group).
