Since we define cpu_coregroup_mask() to be the smallest of LLC, package,
and NUMA node, letting it default to just one cpu would change/break the
topology on non-PPTT systems. Wouldn't it?

If we want to drop the check llc_siblings should be default to either
core_siblings or cpumask_of_node(). But I don't really see the point as
any user of llc_siblings that really care about where the LLC is
would have to check if llc_sibling is just assigned a default value or
it is indeed representing the LLC. I'm fine with just expecting the user
to check llc_id to see if the llc_sibling mask is valid or not.
