cpuset: fix regression when failed to generate sched domains

Impact: properly rebuild sched-domains on kmalloc() failure

When cpuset failed to generate sched domains due to kmalloc()
failure, the scheduler should fallback to the single partition
'fallback_doms' and rebuild sched domains, but now it only
destroys but not rebuilds sched domains.

The regression was introduced by:

|    sched: arch_reinit_sched_domains() must destroy domains to force rebuild

After the above commit, partition_sched_domains(0, NULL, NULL) will
only destroy sched domains and partition_sched_domains(1, NULL, NULL)
will create the default sched domain.
