I wanted to keep this function simpler.

There is my first attempt which performs the sync @ task_woken_rt().

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20191220164838.31619-1-qais.yousef@arm.com/

I can revert the sync function to the simpler version defined in that patch
too.

I can potentially move this to uclamp_eff_value() too. Will need to think more
if this is enough. If task_woken_rt() is good for you, I'd say that's more
obviously correct and better to go with it.

FWIW, I think you're referring to Mel's notice in OSPM regarding the overhead.
Trying to see what goes on in there.

Thanks!
