SubjectRe: [Patch v6 5/7] sched/fair: update cpu_capacity to reflect thermal pressure

Maybe we can introduce two terms here: maximum possible capacity and
maximum currently available capacity.
I think using these two terms the message can become more clear:

cpu_capacity initially reflects the maximum possible capacity of a cpu
(capacity orig). Thermal pressure on a cpu means this maximum
possible capacity of a cpu is not available due to thermal events.
This patch subtracts the average thermal pressure for a cpu from the
cpu's maximum possible capacity so that cpu_capacity reflects the
actual maximum currently available capacity.

Kind regards,
Ionela.
