Subject[PATCH 4.14 055/146] cpufreq: schedutil: Use idle_calls counter of the remote CPU
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joel Fernandes <joelaf@google.com>

commit 466a2b42d67644447a1765276259a3ea5531ddff upstream.

Since the recent remote cpufreq callback work, its possible that a cpufreq
update is triggered from a remote CPU. For single policies however, the current
code uses the local CPU when trying to determine if the remote sg_cpu entered
idle or is busy. This is incorrect. To remedy this, compare with the nohz tick
idle_calls counter of the remote CPU.

Fixes: 674e75411fc2 (sched: cpufreq: Allow remote cpufreq callbacks)
