Hmm ..I tried performance governor and found that it slightly increases
idle time.

With nohz=off && ondemand governor, idle time = 4%
With nohz=off && performance governor on all cpus, idle time = 6%

I can't see obvious reasons for that ..afaict bandwidth capping should
be independent of frequency (i.e task gets capped by "used" time,
irrespective of frequency at which it was "using" the cpu)?
