Hi Rafael,

Nice cleanup to the code and docs.

I've reviewed the series, and briefly tested it by setting latencies
from userspace. Can we not remove the debugfs interface? It is a quick
way to check the global cpu latency clamp on the system from userspace
without setting up tracepoints or writing a program to read

Except for patch 01/28 removing the debugfs interface, please feel to add my
