SubjectRe: [PATCH] Revert "cpufreq: schedutil: Don't restrict kthread to related_cpus unnecessarily"

Okay, I didn't knew that DL threads don't migrate at all. I don't
think that's what we want then specially for big LITTLE platforms. But
for the rest, I don't know. Take example of Qcom krait. Each CPU has a
separate policy, why shouldn't we allow other CPUs to run the kthread?

Yeah, the testing wasn't performance oriented but rather corner case
oriented and it made sense to allow other CPUs to go update the freq
for remote CPUs. And that's true for big LITTLE as well, the only
question here is which CPUs we want the thread to run on.
