That should work too, but clearing the flag outside of
uclamp_rq_inc_id() feels a little bit more robust to ordering
issues.

Specifically, uclamp_rq_inc() has the following pattern:

for_each_clamp_id(clamp_id)
uclamp_rq_inc_id(rq, p , clamp_id);

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

So, if we change this to clear the flag from
uclamp_rq_inc_id()->uclamp_idle_reset() then we'll have issues if
(for example) for_each_clamp_id()'s order changes in the future.
IOW, it feels cleaner to not create side effects in uclamp_rq_inc_id()
that impact the idle flag given that its very own behaviour depends on
the flag.

WDYT?

Cheers,
Quentin
