Ok.. makes sense. CQM is just how I was introduced to the feature and it
sticked along with me. I will change it to CMT.

Yes, that's right. Will fix it.

My bad! Will fix the comment.

No, it wouldn't because mum_resctrlfs is 0. When resctrl FS is already mounted
and mum_resctrlfs is 0, then remount_resctrlfs() is a noop.

This change shouldn't impact other tests (i.e. CAT) because CAT will not call
resctrl_val().

The change here is that we don't need to check for test case. I think for
previous CQM test, it was directly passing "bytes" and hence span was not
being multiplied by MB. But for the new CQM test case, span has to be
multiplied and hence is same as MBM/MBA and hence the change, don't check for
test case (and please note that CAT test doesn't get here, so it's only three
tests).

Sai
