SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] sched: Use iowait boost policy option in schedutil

As I understand it, you want to make iowait boost optional. It may be worth
mentioning why we want to do that in the commit somewhere. I am quite sure
you don't want for some of the ARM platforms. Can you please elaborate?

PeterZ once indicated that he is against adding any tunables for the schedutil
governor. This is another one we have now.

Maybe just:

bool iowait_boost;

I don't see this being used at all. Am I missing something ?
