This is caused by /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/topology not existing in
the tarball. So this is actually expected. Can you check whether this
directory exists on the machine and whether it's empty or not?

Your former "good.txt" used sysfs+devicetree. Your "bad.txt" and
"bad2.txt" used cpuinfo without devicetree. It says:
"No cores and L2 cache were found in /proc/device-tree/cpus, exiting"

So two things:
1) it should use always cpuinfo instead of sysfs so something looks
wrong in the way we detect whether /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/topology
exists. Where/how did you run your "good.txt" ? Is it a lstopo on the
actual machine without any options/envvariable?
2) it should find things in the devicetree, but we don't have a lot of
debug info in there unfortunately. let's look at (1) first
