If I understand the intent correctly, you are trying to exclude idle
CPUs from affecting calculations of rq UCLAMP_MAX value. If that is
true I think description can be simplified a bit :) In particular it
took me some time to understand what "blocked utilization" means,
however if it's a widely accepted term then feel free to ignore my
input.

IMHO the name of uclamp_rq_max_value() is a bit misleading because:
1. It does not imply that it has to be called only when there are no
more runnable tasks on a CPU. This is currently the case because it's
called only from uclamp_rq_dec_id() and only when bucket->tasks==0 but
nothing in the name of this function indicates that it can't be called
from other places.
2. It does not imply that it marks rq UCLAMP_FLAG_IDLE.
