SubjectRe: [PATCH v5 2/2] sched/uclamp: Protect uclamp fast path code with static key
Date

Hi Qais,
sorry for commenting on v5 with a v6 already posted, but...
... I cannot keep up with your re-spinning rate ;)

More importantly, perhaps you missed to comment on one of my previous
points.

Will have a better look at the rest of v6 later today.

Cheers,
Patrick

In my previous message I was mostly asking about this:

So, what about this instead of adding the (renamed) method above?
