The problem that I'm facing is that the sched_entity bandwidth is
removed after the 0-lag time and the rq->dl.running_bw goes back to
zero but if the DL task has preempted a CFS task, the utilization of
the CFS task will be lower than reality and schedutil will set a lower
OPP whereas the CPU is always running. The example with a RT task
described in the cover letter can be run with a DL task and will give
similar results.
avg_dl.util_avg tracks the utilization of the rq seen by the scheduler
whereas rq->dl.running_bw gives the minimum to match DL requirement.
