I am wondering why the need for a separate aggregation API. To me, it
looks like using sugov_get_util to set the sg_cpu util elements and
then do the aggregation at the same time would have the same effect
(without changing the existing parameter list). Is this to handle a
future usecase where aggregation may need to be done differently? For
all the user's of sugov_get_util, aggregation is done in the same way.
Anyway if I missed something, sorry for the noise.

thanks,

-Joel
