Benchmark is the usual culprit:

https://lisa-linux-integrated-system-analysis.readthedocs.io/en/master/kernel_tests.html#lisa.tests.scheduler.misfit.StaggeredFinishes

This test spawns 1 CPU hog per CPU, and screams whenever a CPU of capacity
X is running a hog while another CPU of capacity Y > X has been idling for
"too long" (a few ms). IOW it makes sure upmigration happens in a timely
manner.

Some of the test platforms (Juno (4+2 big.LITTLE), HiKey960 (4+4
big.LITTLE)) show some improvements due to the last 2 patches.

As for systems with CPUs in the [819-1024] "deadzone", Ionela's been kindly
running said test on said RB5, and the upmigrations look just fine with the
patches applied.
