SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] cpufreq: ondemand: Eliminate the deadband effect
Hi!

Hmm. Intel i7 should be race-to-idle machine. So basically rule like
if (load > 0) go to max frequency else go to lowest frequency would do
the right thing in your test, right?

So... should we do that, or do we need better benchmark?
