The kernel I use has all the vendor hooks and hacks switched off to
keep it as close to mainline as possible. Unfortunately 5.18 was the
last mainline that worked on this device due to some driver issues so we
just backport mainline scheduling patches as they come out to at least
keep the scheduler itself up to date.

I don't think it'll fix the GB5 score side of it as that's clearly
related to overutilization while the condition changed in v3 is inside
the non-OU section of feec(). I'll still test the v3 on the weekend
if I have some free time.

The power usage issue was already introduced in the uclamp fits capacity
patchset that's been merged so I doubt this change will be enough to
account for it but I'll give it a try regardless.

But they'd be wrongly triggered with the 'baseline_ufc' variant while
not with the 'baseline' variant. The baseline here is pre taking uclamp
into account for cpu_overutilized, all cpu_overutilized did on that
kernel was compare util against capacity.
Meaning that the 'real' overutilised would be in the ~67% ballpark while
the patch makes it incorrectly not trigger more than half the time. I'm
not sure we can tweak uclamp enough to fix that.
