Hmm. You are right that all cpus in a policy are capped and uncapped
synchronously from the thermal framework point of view. But the thermal
pressure decay can happen at different times for each cpu and hence the
update has to be done on a per cpu basis(especially to keep track of
other age and other variables in the averaging and accumulating
algorithm). It can be separated out but I think it will just make the
solution more complicated.
