SubjectRe: [patch v7 20/21] sched: don't do power balance on share cpu power domain
Hi Alex,

I am sorry I overlooked the changes you have made to the power
scheduling policies.Now you have just two : performance and powersave.

Hence you can ignore my below comments.But if you use group->capacity
instead of group->weight for threshold,like you did for balance policy
in your version5 of this patchset, dont you think the below patch can be
avoided? group->capacity being the threshold will automatically ensure
that you dont pack onto domains that share cpu power.

Regards
Preeti U Murthy
