Would be nice to find a way to cache all these util and reuse them
below... even just to ensure data consistency between the "cs"
computation and its usage...

^^^^

The above code could theoretically return NULL, although likely EAS is
completely disabled if em->nb_cap_states == 0, right?

If that's the case then, in the previous function, you can certainly
avoid the initialization of *cs and maybe also add an explicit:

BUG_ON(em->nb_cap_states == 0);

which helps even just as "in code documentation".

But, I'm not sure if maintainers like BUG_ON in scheduler code :)

Should we make more explicit that this is just the "active" energy
consumed?

nit-pick: empty line before return?
