The last bit doesn't parse right. '... Maybe it is better to drop
the reference to get_cpu_usage which hasn't been defined yet and rewrite
the thing to:

Apply frequency scale-invariance correction factor to utilization
tracking. Each segment of the running_load_avg geometric series is now
scaled by the current frequency so the utilization_avg_contrib of each
entity will be invariant with frequency scaling. As a result,
utilization_load_avg which is the sum of sched_entity
utilization_avg_contribs becomes invariant too and is now relative to
the max utilization at the max frequency (=cpu_capacity).

I think we should add:

arch_scale_freq_capacity() is reintroduced to provide the frequency
compensation scaling factor.

s/Then, we/We/
