IMO uclamp_eff_value() is a simple accessor to uclamp_se.value
(unsigned int), which is why I didn't want to change its return type.
I see it as being the task equivalent of rq->uclamp[clamp_id].value, IOW
"give me the uclamp value for that clamp index". It just happens to be a
bit more intricate for tasks than for rqs.

uclamp_util() & uclamp_util_with() do explicitly return a utilization,
so here it makes sense (in my mind, that is) to return UL.
