Subject[PATCH 0/3] Improve EAS energy estimation and increase precision
Date
Hi all,

The patch set aims to address a scenario for Energy Aware Scheduler,
where we estimate and compare energy values and miss a more precised results.
In some use cases estimations for two CPUs might give the same values
for a given task and it's utilization. Those values would be different
when we have a better precision and avoid this rounding error.
Thus, the decision of choosing a CPU for a waking-up task might also
be better.

We have received this feedback from our partners.

Address this rounding error issue and increase the precision of Energy Model
em_perf_state::cost values. This change should not affect other
subsystems in kernel: thermal IPA, PowerCap DTPM, etc, since they use
em_perf_state::power field, which is not touched. It also doesn't
trigger the need for updating all existing platforms to register EM and report
power values in different scale.

Regards,
Lukasz
