Mmm, I see. Note that I'm only being cautious, what you propose might
work OK, but it seems to me that we might lose some of the benefits of
running tasks with DEADLINE if we start selecting frequency as you
propose even when such tasks are running.

An idea might be to copy running_bw util into dl.util_avg when a DL task
goes to sleep, and then decay the latter as for RT contribution. What
you think?
