Subject: [PATCH v2 01/12] sched/core: uclamp: extend sched_setattr to support utilization clamping
Date: Mon, 16 Jul 2018 09:28:55 +0100
Message-ID: <20180716082906.6061-2-patrick.bellasi@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180716082906.6061-1-patrick.bellasi@arm.com>

The SCHED_DEADLINE scheduling class provides an advanced and formal
model to define tasks requirements which can be translated into proper
decisions for both task placements and frequencies selections.
Other classes have a more simplified model which is essentially based on
the relatively simple concept of POSIX priorities.

Such a simple priority based model however does not allow to exploit
some of the most advanced features of the Linux scheduler like, for
example, driving frequencies selection via the schedutil cpufreq
governor. However, also for non SCHED_DEADLINE tasks, it's still
interesting to define tasks properties which can be used to better
support certain scheduler decisions.

Utilization clamping aims at exposing to user-space a new set of
per-task attributes which can be used to provide the scheduler with some
hints about the expected/required utilization for a task.
This will allow to implement a more advanced per-task frequency control
mechanism which is not based just on a "passive" measured task
utilization but on a more "active" approach. For example, it could be
possible to boost interactive tasks, thus getting better performance, or
cap background tasks, thus being more energy efficient.
Ultimately, such a mechanism can be considered similar to the cpufreq's
powersave, performance and userspace governor but with a much fine
grained and per-task control.

Let's introduce a new API to set utilization clamping values for a
specified task by extending sched_setattr, a syscall which already
allows to define task specific properties for different scheduling
classes.
Specifically, a new pair of attributes allows to specify a minimum and
maximum utilization which the scheduler should consider for a task.
