Subject[PATCH] [RFC] sched: restrict iowait boost for boosted task only
From
Currently iowait doesn't distinguish background/foreground tasks.
This may not be a problem in servers but could impact devices that
are more sensitive on energy consumption. [1]
In Android world, we have seen many cases where device run to high and
inefficient frequency unnecessarily when running some background task
which are interacting I/O.

The ultimate goal is to only apply iowait boost on UX related tasks and
leave the rest for EAS scheduler for better efficiency.

This patch limits iowait boost for tasks which are associated with boost
signal from user land. On Android specifically, those are foreground or
top app tasks.
