Or maybe something directly in sd_init(), like the WARN_ONCE() which triggers
if somebody wants to sneak in a ~topology flag via a
sched_domain_topology_level table?

IMHO checking `SD_SHARE_CPUCAPACITY | SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY` will be sufficient
here.

In case we can agree on something simple here I guess you can incorporate it into v7.
