In fact, I have kept the same behavior as with rt_avg, which was
already adding steal time when computing scale_rt_capacity, which is
used to reflect the remaining capacity for FAIR tasks and is used in
load balance. I'm not sure that it's worth using different variables
for irq and steal.
That being said, I see a possible optimization in schedutil when
PARAVIRT_TIME_ACCOUNTING is enable and IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING is disable.
With this kind of config, scale_irq_capacity can be a nop for
schedutil but scales the utilization for scale_rt_capacity

Vincent
