Thank you very much ! I did a quick test with a much simpler fix to this
RT-steals-time-from-CFS issue using just the existing scale_rt_capacity().
I get the following results on Hikey960:

Without patch:
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/stats/total_trans
12
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy4/stats/total_trans
640
With patch
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/stats/total_trans
8
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy4/stats/total_trans
12

Yes the rt_avg stuff is out of sync with the PELT signal, but do you think
this is an actual issue for realistic use-cases ?

What about the diff below (just a quick hack to show the idea) applied
on tip/sched/core ?
