So what I have done is :

diff --git a/kernel/sched/topology.c b/kernel/sched/topology.c
index 77e6f79235ad..ec4ae225687e 100644
--- a/kernel/sched/topology.c
+++ b/kernel/sched/topology.c
@@ -1324,6 +1324,7 @@ asym_cpu_capacity_classify(struct sched_domain *sd,
if (!asym_cap_miss)
sd_asym_flags |= SD_ASYM_CPUCAPACITY_FULL;

+ WARN_ONCE(cpu_smt_flags() & sd->flags, "Detected CPU capacity asymmetry on SMT level");
leave:
return sd_asym_flags;
}
Comment can be adjusted.
This would sit in the classify function to nicely wrap asymmetry bits in one
place. What do you think ?
