Because tasks without a task-specific clamp value assigned are subject
to system default... but those, by default, don't clamp at all:

uclamp_default = [0..1024]

For RT tasks however, we want to execute then always at max OPP, if
not otherwise requested (e.g. task-specific value). Thus we need a
different set of default clamps:

uclamp_perf_default = [1024..1024]
