Subject[patch v7 04/21] sched: add sysfs interface for sched_balance_policy selection
Date
This patch add the power aware scheduler knob into sysfs:

$cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_balance_policy/available_sched_balance_policy
performance powersaving
$cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_balance_policy/current_sched_balance_policy
powersaving

This means the using sched balance policy is 'powersaving'.

User can change the policy by commend 'echo':
echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_balance_policy/current_sched_balance_policy

+Description: CFS balance policy show and set interface.

+ available_sched_balance_policy: shows there are 2 kinds of
+ policies:
+ performance powersaving.
+ current_sched_balance_policy: shows current scheduler policy.
+ User can change the policy by writing it.
+
+ Policy decides the CFS scheduler how to balance tasks onto
+ different CPU unit.
+
+ performance: try to spread tasks onto more CPU sockets,
+ more CPU cores. performance oriented.
+
+ powersaving: try to pack tasks onto same core or same CPU
+ until every LCPUs are busy in the core or CPU socket.
+ powersaving oriented.
