"Remaining maximum capacity"?

Yes, here we do subtract RT/DL utilization as well. But from the thermal
pressure point of view, it is immaterial. I am not touching the code
that subtracts RT/DL utilization , I am just adding thermal pressure to
the variables that has to be deducted from the stated max capacity to
reflect the actual capacity. So as far as this patch series is
concerned, capped/decreased capacity is the same across all
patches.(Though there is the instantaneous capped capacity and the
time-averaged capped capacity)

Warm Regards
