Ah, I see it now. We don't actually cache active_only votes anywhere,
since they're one time requests. The sleep/wake votes seem to be the
only thing that gets cached.

I was thinking it might be safer to also set dirty = true just after
list_add_tail, since in the non-existing case this is a new batch that
RPMh has never seen before and should always be written. But I suppose
your checks here should cover that case, since sleep_val and wake_val
are initialized to UINT_MAX. If you think the code might evolve, it
might still be nice to add it.

While I'm looking at that, why do we have this needless INIT_LIST_HEAD?
INIT_LIST_HEAD(&req->list);
list_add_tail(&req->list, &ctrlr->cache);
