But posting again without making proposed changes or finishing earlier
discussion is normally not appreciated, specially by the very busy maintainers
(I am not one of those though :)). For example, I had to go look at previous
discussions now to see what all comments I gave and what has changed in respect
to them. That wasted lots of time as nothing really changed.

If you want to refresh the discussion, then its probably better to finish
discussions on the earlier threads only and then only send a new version.

Yeah, my point was to have similar behavior in single and shared policy cases.

I think its important to fix the basic mechanism of util update than fixing
corner cases with workarounds. I attempted a simpler approach (at least
according to me :)). Please share your feedback on it. You can include that as
part of your series, or I can send it separately if everyone finds it okay.

Subject: [PATCH] sched: Keep track of cpufreq utilization update flags

Currently the schedutil governor overwrites the sg_cpu->flags field on
every call to the utilization handler. It was pretty good as the initial
implementation of utilization handlers, there are several drawbacks
though.

The biggest drawback is that the sg_cpu->flags field doesn't always
represent the correct type of tasks that are enqueued on a CPU's rq. For
example, if a fair task is enqueued while a RT or DL task is running, we
will overwrite the flags with value 0 and that may take the CPU to lower
OPPs unintentionally. There can be other corner cases as well which we
aren't aware of currently.

This patch changes the current implementation to keep track of all the
task types that are currently enqueued to the CPUs rq. There are two
flags for every scheduling class now, one to set the flag and other one
to clear it. The flag is set by the scheduling classes from the existing
set of calls to cpufreq_update_util(), and the flag is cleared when the
last task of the scheduling class is dequeued. For now, the util update
handlers return immediately if they were called to clear the flag.

We can add more optimizations over this patch separately.

The last parameter of sugov_set_iowait_boost() is also dropped as the
function can get it from sg_cpu anyway.
