Subject[RFCv2 1/6] sched/core: Add manual jitter classification from cgroup interface
Date
Jitter tasks are usually of less important in terms of performance
and are short/bursty in characteristics. TurboSched uses this jitter
classification to pack jitters into the already running busy cores to
keep the total idle core count high.

The patch describes the use of UCLAMP mechanism to classify tasks. Patrick
Bellasi came up with a mechanism to classify tasks from the userspace
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190402104153.25404-1-patrick.bellasi@arm.com/

This UCLAMP mechanism can be useful in classifying tasks as jitter. Jitters
can be classified for the cgroup by keeping util.max of the tasks as the
least(=0). This also provides benefit of giving the least frequency to
those jitter tasks, which is useful if all jitters are packed onto a
separate core.

Use Case with UCLAMP
===================
To create a cgroup with all the tasks classified as jitters;

```
mkdir -p /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu/jitter
echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/sched_uclamp_util_min;
echo 0 > /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu/jitter/cpu.util.min;
echo 0 > /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu/jitter/cpu.util.max;
i=8;
./turbo_bench -t 30 -h $i -n $i &
./turbo_bench -t 30 -h 0 -n $i &
echo $! > /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu/jitter/cgroup.procs;
```
