Subject[PATCH v3 0/6] cpufreq: schedutil: fixes for flags updates
This is a re-spin of a previous posting [1], rebased on v4.15-rc1.

A detailed description of the series, as well as experimental results,
is available in the cover letter of the previous posting.
Here is a resume of the main results:

- reduces energy consumption by ~50% by ensuring that a small task is always
running at the minimum OPP even when the sugov's RT kthread is used to change
frequencies in the same cluster

- increase from 4% to 98% the chances for a RT task to complete its activations
while running at the max OPP.

- The sequence of tracing events reported in a trace is much more deterministic
and matching the expected system behaviors. For example, as soon as a RT
task wakes up we ask for an OPP switch to max frequency.

A detailed report for these results is available here [2].

According to the discussion in the previous posting, one patch:

cpufreq: schedutil: ignore the sugov kthread for frequencies selections

was considered the more controversial.
That's why in this posting I'm still proposing that patch, since it
still makes sense to me, but I've moved it at the end of the series,
after the less controversial ones.

Cheers Patrick
