Agreed, it was a little too broad. I will send an updated patch soon.

Alternatively, can we add a special check for ignored system wide QOS
class in:
int pm_qos_request(int pm_qos_class)

i.e.
diff --git a/kernel/power/qos.c b/kernel/power/qos.c
index 8dff9b4..9342da4 100644
--- a/kernel/power/qos.c
+++ b/kernel/power/qos.c
@@ -286,10 +286,28 @@ bool pm_qos_update_flags(struct pm_qos_flags *pqf,
*/
int pm_qos_request(int pm_qos_class)
{
- return pm_qos_read_value(pm_qos_array[pm_qos_class]->constraints);
+ struct pm_qos_constraints *c;
+
+ c = pm_qos_array[pm_qos_class]->constraints;
+ if (c->state == PM_QOS_CONSTRAINT_IGNORED)
+ return PM_QOS_DEFAULT_VALUE;
+ return pm_qos_read_value(c);


Then we don't have to add a special routine just for CPU_DMA_LATENCY
class. It does not affect other system wide QOS classes unless the
state is set to be ignored.
