Subject[PATCH RESEND] cpufreq: schedutil: Use idle_calls counter of the remote CPU
Date
Since the recent remote cpufreq callback work, its possible that a cpufreq
update is triggered from a remote CPU. For single policies however, the current
code uses the local CPU when trying to determine if the remote sg_cpu entered
idle or is busy. This is incorrect. To remedy this, compare with the nohz tick
idle_calls counter of the remote CPU.

Just resending this which is cpufreq-related as requested by Rafael rebased
on linus/master.

The other 2 patches in my last series which can go in independent of this one are:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10115395/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10115401/
I'm still waiting on scheduler maintainers to comment on those. Unfortunately,
I haven't heard back anything yet since the last repost of those.
