[PATCH] sched: set SD_PREFER_SIBLING on MC domain to reduce a domainlevel

From: Alex Shi
Date: Fri Dec 28 2012 - 00:53:00 EST

The domain flag SD_PREFER_SIBLING was set both on MC and CPU domain at
frist commit b5d978e0c7e79a, and was removed in-carefully when clear up
obsolete power scheduler. Then commit 6956dc568 recover the flag on CPU
domain only. It works, but it introduces a extra domain level since this
cause MC/CPU different.

So, recover the the flag in MC domain too to remove a domain level in
x86 platform.

This flag can not be removed since it is used to keep parent domain
balancing, like in NUMA domain, update_sd_pick_busiest() need a reduced
group_capacity to return 'true' then re-balance tasks from groups.
