The code calls it rebuild_root_domain() ..

.. and so is the original patch title.

I think I have enough explanation in the commit message and renamed the
function name to be more descriptive too.

IIUC you're suggesting to introduce some new mechanism to detect if hotplug has
lead to a cpu to disappear or not and use that instead? Are you saying I can
use arch_update_cpu_topology() for that? Something like this?

	diff --git a/kernel/cgroup/cpuset.c b/kernel/cgroup/cpuset.c
	index e5ddc8e11e5d..60c3dcf06f0d 100644
	--- a/kernel/cgroup/cpuset.c
	+++ b/kernel/cgroup/cpuset.c
	@@ -1122,7 +1122,7 @@ partition_and_rebuild_sched_domains(int ndoms_new, cpumask_var_t doms_new[],
		partition_sched_domains_locked(ndoms_new, doms_new, dattr_new);
	-       if (update_dl_accounting)
	+       if (arch_update_cpu_topology())

I am not keen on this. arm64 seems to just read a value without a side effect.
But x86 does reset this value so we can't read it twice in the same call tree
and I'll have to extract it.

The better solution that was discussed before is to not iterate through every
task in the system and let cpuset track when dl tasks are added to it and do
smarter iteration. ATM even if there are no dl tasks in the system we'll
blindly go through every task in the hierarchy to update nothing.

But I'll leave that to Juri to address if he wants. The original change has
introduced a regression and people have noticed when phones cycle through
suspend resume (screen unlock). Juri - could you please chip in on how you want
to address this regression? In theory I should be just a reporter, but trying
my best to help ;-)
