Subject: [PATCH 2/3] sched/rt: allow pulling unfitting task
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 16:39:48 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200214163949.27850-3-qais.yousef@arm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200214163949.27850-1-qais.yousef@arm.com>

When implemented RT Capacity Awareness; the logic was done such that if
a task was running on a fitting CPU, then it was sticky and we would try
our best to keep it there.

But as Steve suggested, to adhere to the strict priority rules of RT
class; allow pulling an RT task to unfitting CPU to ensure it gets a
chance to run ASAP. When doing so, mark the queue as overloaded to give
the system a chance to push the task to a better fitting CPU when a
chance arises.
