I'm planning to rebase this series on Linus's master and post it
again, but just checking any thoughts about it?

Just to add more context, the reason for not updating the frequency:

- When a last dequeue of a sleeping task happens, it is sufficient to
update utilization without updating the frequency because if other
CPUs are busy then their updates will consider the utilization of the
idle CPU in the shared policy unless sufficient time has passed.

- If the last dequeue of a sleeping task happens while all other CPUs
in the cluster are idle, then the cluster will likely enter
cluster-idle soon.

Could you let me know your opinions on this series?
