Ok, now i see! So bwmon shows similar performance compared with the current
cpufreq-based bandwidth scaling. And if you add bwmon on top of vanilla, are
the results close/same? Is the plan to remove the cpufreq based bandwidth
scaling and switch to bwmon? It might improve the power consumption in some
scenarios.

Thanks,
