I just realized this needs

if (clamp_id == UCLAMP_MAX)
rq->uclamp_flags &= ~UCLAMP_FLAG_IDLE;

The code is only set for UCLAMP_MAX, so should be cleared for UCLAMP_MAX too.

Though there's ugly overload here:

if (!(rq->uclamp_flags & UCLAMP_FLAG_IDLE))
return;

This check would fail prematurely if UCLAMP_MAX was reset before UCLAMP_MIN.
The code before your change would reset both then do the clear. But now when we
do it from here, we need to be more careful about that.

Not sure what we can do beside adding a comment. The options I'm thinking about
are too intrusive FWIW.

Cheers
