That's fine :)

I thought about that earlier, but then thought this would be a cleaner solution.
And guess what, I was wrong.. There is one scenario for which we need to
set requested_freq correctly..

Suppose we have requested_freq currently greater than policy->max and load
decreases. We will start decreasing requested_freq but it will take
one iteration
to make it equal to max, which is not we want.. So we actually need to set
it to max when it gets over it.

So, don't do the change I asked for, i.e. replacing == with >=. But
update existing

dbs_info->requested_freq += get_freq_target(cs_tuners, policy);

this way:

dbs_info->requested_freq += get_freq_target(cs_tuners, policy);
if (dbs_info->requested_freq > policy->max)
dbs_info->requested_freq = policy->max;
