Scheduler CFS class has variable 'capacity_margin' to represent the capacity margin, currently in the kernel 'capacity_margin' is 1280; on the other hand schedutil governor also needs to compensate the margin for frequency tipping point. Below are formulas which are used in CFS class and schedutil governor separately, from the formulas we can get to know essentially both of them uses the same margin:
CFS: U` = U * capacity_margin / 1024 = U * 1.25 Schedutil: U` = U + U >> 2 = U + U * 0.25 = U * 1.25
This patch consolidates the usage of the capacity margin value and lets schedutil use the same formula as the CFS class. Thus we can avoid the mismatch between schedutil and CFS class if 'capacity_margin' is changed to other values in the future.
