I'd be tempted to say the we actually want to cap to this one above
instead of using the max (as you are proposing below) or the
(theoretical) power reduction benefits of using DEADLINE for certain
tasks might vanish.

Anyway, just a quick thought. I guess we should experiment with this a
bit. Now, I don't unfortunately have a Arm platform at hand for testing.
Claudio, Luca (now Cc-ed), would you be able to fire some tests with
this change?

Oh, adding Joel and Alessio as well that experimented with DEADLINE
lately.

Thanks,
