Here's another approach that might be worth considering, I was discussing
with Vineeth. Freeze the min_vruntime of CPUs when the core enters into
force-idle. I think this is similar to Peter's suggestion.

It is doing quite well in my real-world audio tests. This applies on top of
our ChromeOS 4.19 kernel tree [1] (which has the v5 series).

Any thoughts or review are most welcome especially from Peter :)
