But only if the _current_ capacity of big CPUs (at the current freq) is
higher than the current capacity of the littles, is that right ? So we
don't really have a guarantee to pack small tasks on little cores ...

What is the rationale for looking at the current freq in dl_task_fit() ?
Energy reasons ? If so, I'd argue you should look at the energy model to
break the tie between CPU candidates ... ;)

And in the mean time, you could just look at arch_scale_cpu_capacity()
to check if a task fits ?

Hmm, these can get pretty big, so not sure about having one on the stack ...
