Hmmm I see your point, but running_bw and the util_avg are fundamentally
different ... I mean, the util_avg doesn't know about the period, which is
an issue in itself I guess ...

If you have a long running DL task (say 100ms runtime) with a long period
(say 1s), the running_bw should represent ~1/10 of the CPU capacity, but
the util_avg can go quite high, which means that you might end up
executing this task at max OPP. So if we really want to drive OPPs like
that for deadline, a util_est-like version of this util_avg signal
should help. Now, you can also argue that going to max OPP for a task
that _we know_ uses 1/10 of the CPU capacity isn't right ...
