Sure; on x86 for example our micro-code does whatever. But using
schedutil we at least 'guide' it in the general direction we'd expect
with the control that is available.

Using a !schedutil governor doesn't even get us that and we're basically
running on random input without any feedback to close the loop. Not
something I feel we should support or care for.
