Subject[RFD PATCH 0/5] SCHED_DEADLINE freq/cpu invariance and OPP selection

this is a very exploratory set implementing frequency/cpu invariance and OPP
selection for SCHED_DEADLINE. The set has been slightly tested on a Juno
platform. While the actual implementation is very premature, I'm posting this
early to facilitate discussion at OSPM-summit [1].

Results of the testing, highlighting why these features are useful are
available here:

- without the set

- with the set

The set is based on tip/sched/core as of today (bc4278987e38) plus a couple of
schedutil fixes coming from linux-pm/linux-next and Luca's "CPU reclaiming for

Patches high level description:

o [01-02]/05 add the necessary links to start accounting DEADLINE contribution
to OPP selection
o 03/05 it's an hack to make possible (on ARM) to change frequency for
DEADLINE tasks (that would possibly delay the SCHED_FIFO worker
kthread); suggestions on how to do this properly are very welcome
o 04/05 it's a schedutil change that copes with the fact that DEADLINE
doesn't require periodic OPP selection triggering point
o 05/05 implements frequency/cpu invariance for tasks' reservation
parameters*; which basically means that we implement GRUB-PA [3]

Please have a look. Feedback on how we want to shape this is the sole purpose
of this posting.

In case you would like to test this out:

* Notice that this currently breaks !CONFIG_SMP, as arch_scale_{freq,cpu}
_capacity and SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE are only defined on CONFIG_SMP. Fixing
this particular issue is straightforward, but we should probably look into
making frequency scaling (and PELT averages) available on !CONFIG_SMP as well
(so that schedutil can work on such configurations for example). Since this is
only an RFD and since a proper rework might be non trivial, I decided to leave
it out of scope for the time being.

Juri Lelli (5):
sched/cpufreq_schedutil: make use of DEADLINE utilization signal
sched/deadline: move cpu frequency selection triggering points
sched/cpufreq_schedutil: make worker kthread be SCHED_DEADLINE
sched/cpufreq_schedutil: always consider all CPUs when deciding next
sched/deadline: make bandwidth enforcement scale-invariant
