Sure. Does it hurt to keep the comment here too though?

+1

Can do. But this means you need to move the initialization to sched_init() to
do a function call. Using SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE is consistent with other uclamp
sysctl definition - there's no big advantage to this code shuffling to achieve
the same thing?

Yeah that might be a better place - I'm not sure why I didn't consider it. I'll
try it out.

Thanks for having a look!
