ACPI and hence will have right notion of package.

Not sure if it was ever used on ARM/ARM64

Yes this is main affected driver. I don't think it's used by any ARM64
platform anymore. This is one of the reason I divorced SCPI driver from
this recently. ARM32 may still retain old definition of package_id(not
sure, depends if anyone as need to change that and maintainers view on
that). If not, we need to fix this driver along with the code changing
the definition.

x86 specific and never assumed cluster id.

Generic and hence never assumed cluster id.
