Just a bit of info:
My MT6797X (10 core: 4×A53 + 4×A53 + 2×A72), flickers its cores this way:
the right-hand piece is CPUs, one character per core: bars show utilization,
"o" stands for offline; every line is 0.1 second interval.

topline -i 0.1
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▄▆oo▅o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▅▄oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▆oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▅ooo▆o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▆oo▄o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▇oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▇ooo▅o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo█o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo▄o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▅ooo▆o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo▅o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▄ooo▇o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▇▆oo▆o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo▅o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▅▆oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆█oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▇oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▆oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▅▆oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▅oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo▆o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo▇o)
mmcblk(⢀) (oooo▆▇oo▆o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▄ooo▆o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆ooo█o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▄ooo▇o)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▄▆oooo)
mmcblk(⠀) (oooo▆▆oooo)

So it's on the order of a few ons/offs per second.

The offline CPUs are "present" and "offline"; not sure if this means hotplug
or not (I'd expect dropping from "present" to "possible", but I don't know
these parts).


Meow!
