Hello Doug,

schedutil in 5.4 going a lot faster than in 5.3 would be a surprise. I'm
running that same test too to check if I can see it as well.

Besides, as it's already been said this patchset adds frequency
scale-invariance to scheduler metrics such as load and utilization and that's
useful also in areas other than frequency scaling (most notably the scheduler
load balancer).


Thanks,
Giovanni
