Yes, that's because with CGroups we set the max allowed value, which
is also the one used for a clamp IFF:
- the task is not part of a more restrictive group
- the task has not a more restrictive task specific value

I'll improve this comment on the next respin.

The other place is to define / initialize "uclamp_default_perf", which
is the default clamps used for RT tasks, introduce by the last patch:

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20180828135324.21976-17-patrick.bellasi@arm.com/

So, RT tasks and root task group are the only two exceptions for
which, by default, we want a maximum boosting.

Not entirely convinced, maybe because of the name you suggest: it
cannot contain tg, because it applies also to RT tasks when TG are not
in use.

Maybe something like: uclamp_max_boost(clamp_id) could work instead ?

It will make more explicit that the configuration will maps into a:

util.min = util.max = SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE

Cheers,
Patrick
