Not really, this has been added not because I've detected a refcount
issue... but because it was suggested as a possible safety check in a
previous code review comment:

I've never saw that warning in my tests so far so, again, the warning
is there just to support testing/debugging when refcounting code
is/will be touched in the future. That's also the reason why is
SCHED_DEBUG protected.

Here you right, I would say that it should always be:

clamp_value <= uc_cpu->value[clamp_id]

since this matches the update done at the end of uclamp_cpu_get_id():

if (uc_cpu->value[clamp_id] < clamp_value)
uc_cpu->value[clamp_id] = clamp_value;

Perhaps we can add another safety check here, similar to the one
above, to have something like:

clamp_value = uc_grp[group_id].value;
#ifdef SCHED_DEBUG
if (unlikely(clamp_value > uc_cpu->value[clamp_id])) {
WARN(1, "invalid CPU[%d] clamp group [%d:%d] value\n",
cpu_of(rq), clamp_id, group_id);
#endif
if (clamp_value == uc_cpu->value[clamp_id])
uclamp_cpu_update(rq, clamp_id);
