Thanks, applied for v4.15.

My understanding from the following comment in the cover letter is that not
currently the case and this there is no behavioural change in applying this
patch.

For the record I observed the following with and without this patch
applied. I believe this is the expected result.

v4.14-rc1
# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpu_capacity
1535
1535
1535
1535
1024
1024
1024
1024

v4.14-rc1 + patch
# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpu_capacity
1024
1024
1024
1024
539
539
539
539
