hmm. Why ? It is thermal pressure. It is finally applied to the
scheduler metric cpu_capacity. It should not be anything other than
capacity reduction due to thermal events that should be provided.

I agree. I will change the struct into a single variable delta and
initialize it to 0. populate_max_capacity_info need not be there. I will
have update_maxcap_capacity calculate the delta with
arch_scale_cpu_capacity and store it into a per cpu variable.
