Subject[PATCH v4] sched/freq: move call to cpufreq_update_util
Date
update_cfs_rq_load_avg() calls cfs_rq_util_change() everytime pelt decays,
which might be inefficient when cpufreq driver has rate limitation.

When a task is attached on a CPU, we have call path:

update_load_avg()
update_cfs_rq_load_avg()
cfs_rq_util_change -- > trig frequency update
attach_entity_load_avg()
cfs_rq_util_change -- > trig frequency update

The 1st frequency update will not take into account the utilization of the
newly attached task and the 2nd one might be discard because of rate
limitation of the cpufreq driver.

update_cfs_rq_load_avg() is only called by update_blocked_averages()
and update_load_avg() so we can move the call to
cfs_rq_util_change/cpufreq_update_util() into these 2 functions. It's also
interesting to notice that update_load_avg() already calls directly
cfs_rq_util_change() for !SMP case.

This changes will also ensure that cpufreq_update_util() is called even
when there is no more CFS rq in the leaf_cfs_rq_list to update but only
irq, rt or dl pelt signals.
