Subject[PATCH v4 06/16] sched/cpufreq: uclamp: add utilization clamping for FAIR tasks
Date
Each time a frequency update is required via schedutil, a frequency is
selected to (possibly) satisfy the utilization reported by the CFS
class. However, when utilization clamping is in use, the frequency
selection should consider the requirements suggested by userspace, for
example, to:

- boost tasks which are directly affecting the user experience
by running them at least at a minimum "required" frequency

- cap low priority tasks not directly affecting the user experience
by running them only up to a maximum "allowed" frequency

These constraints are meant to support a per-task based tuning of the
frequency selection thus allowing to have a fine grained definition of
performance boosting vs energy saving strategies in kernel space.

Let's add the required support to clamp the utilization generated by
FAIR tasks within the boundaries defined by their aggregated utilization
clamp constraints.
On each CPU the aggregated clamp values are obtained by considering the
maximum of the {min,max}_util values for each task. This max aggregation
responds to the goal of not penalizing, for example, high boosted (i.e.
more important for the user-experience) CFS tasks which happens to be
co-scheduled with high capped (i.e. less important for the
user-experience) CFS tasks.

For FAIR tasks both the utilization as well as the IOWait boost values
are clamped according to the CPU aggregated utilization clamp
constraints.

The default values for boosting and capping are defined to be:
- util_min: 0
- util_max: SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE
which means that by default no boosting/capping is enforced on FAIR
tasks, and thus the frequency will be selected considering the actual
utilization value of each CPU.
