Yeah, the capacity-dmips-mhz dt value of 539 for the little cpus is
scaled by 1.3/1.8 (max cpu capacity/ system wide max cpu capacity):

539 * 1.3/1.8 = 389

This max cpu capacity scaling is part of both solutions, the 'cpu
capacity-dmips-mhz' and the 'cpu_efficiency/clock-frequency dt property'
one.

The (original*) cpu capacity on a heterogeneous platform expresses uArch
and max cpu frequency differences between the (logical) cpus of the
system.

* not further reduced by rt and/or irq pressure.
