Subject[PATCH 0/3] condition EAS enablement on FI support
Given the maturity gained by cpufreq-based Frequency Invariance (FI)
support following the patches at [1], this series conditions Energy
Aware Scheduling (EAS) enablement on a frequency invariant system.

Currently, EAS can be enabled on a system without FI support, leading
to incorrect (energy-wise) task placements. As no warning is emitted,
it could take some debugging effort to track the behavior back to the
lack of FI support; this series changes that by disabling EAS
(and advertising it) when FI support is missing.

The series is structured as follows:
- 1/3 - create function that can rebuild the scheduling and EAS'
performance domains if EAS' initial conditions change
- 2/3 - condition EAS enablement on FI support
- 3/3 - arm64: rebuild scheduling and performance domains in the
case of late, counter-driven FI initialisation.

This series is dependent on the patches at [1] and based on linux-next

[1] Most recent version at:

Ionela Voinescu (3):
sched/topology,schedutil: wrap sched domains rebuild
sched/topology: condition EAS enablement on FIE support
arm64: rebuild sched domains on invariance status changes
