Something less then 100% will clamp subgroups util.min to that value.
If we want to allow the full span to subgroups, the root group should
not enforce boundaries... hence util.min should be set to 100%.

You right, I forgot to reset result=0 once we passed the two
uclamp_group_find() calls. Will fix in v4.
