[PATCH] top level scheduling domain for large NUMA boxes take #2

Sorry I included the sched.c bit last time.  Here's the patch again w/o it.  
It adds a top level scheduling domain for large systems that doesn't balance 
often.  Only affects NUMA platforms with more than 6 nodes.

Without the patch, large systems will have several disjoint scheduling 
domains, depending on their topology.  Obviously, this is undesirable since 
if one has a large machine, presumably one would like to make use of all of 
its CPUs.
