The aim here is to limit searching for non-idle cores inside a NUMA node
(or DIE sched-domain), because some systems can sustain Turbo frequency by task
packing inside of a NUMA node. Hence turbo domain for them should be DIE.

Since not all systems have DIE domain, adding arch hooks can allow each arch to
override their turbo domain within which to allow task packing.
