IMHO the patch title is misleading since what you want to avoid in
certain cases is that the RD DL accounting is updated.

This one is cpuset related. (1)

This one is drivers/base/arch_topology.c [arm/arm64/...] related. (2)

There are several levels of passing this `update_dl_accounting`
information through. I guess it looks like this:


arm/arm64/riscv/parisc specific:
update_topology_flags_workfn()		true
rebuild_sched_domains_energy()		false (2)

cpuset_hotplug_workfn()                 cpus_updated ||
                         force_rebuild == CPUSET_FORCE_REBUILD_PRS_ERROR


  update_cpumasks_hier()		true
  update_relax_domain_level()		false (1)
  update_flag()				true
  update_prstate()			true


    ->partition_and_rebuild_sched_domains(..., update_dl_accounting)

        if (update_dl_accounting)

There is already a somehow hidden interface for `sd/rd rebuild`

  int __weak arch_update_cpu_topology(void)

which lets partition_sched_domains_locked() figure out whether sched
domains have to be rebuild..

But in your case it is more on the interface `cpuset/hotplug -> sd/rd
rebuild` and not only `arch -> `sd/rd rebuild``.

IMHO, it would be still nice to have only one way to tell `sd/rd
rebuild` what to do and what not to do during sd/rd/(pd) rebuild.
