Not that's not the problem I'm trying to solve.

Without this patch, spawning 2 tasks in Juno, I see a delay in one of the tasks
to move to a big CPU, despite the CPU not having any tasks running on it.

Hmm good point.

No. I abandoned tinkering with the overloaded flag, it'd make things more
complex than I'd like them to.

This gives me the desired effect. I do see the task moving to the right CPU in
2 RT tasks test. Without it, if an RT task was spawned on little CPU I could
see a big delay for it to move to a big CPU although the big CPU is free.

We could do, temporarily, to get these fixes into 5.6. But I do think
select_task_rq_rt() doesn't do a good enough job into pushing unfit tasks to
the right CPUs.

I don't understand the reasons behind your objection. It seems you think that
select_task_rq_rt() should be enough, but not AFAICS. Can you be a bit more
detailed please?

FWIW, here's a screenshot of what I see

	https://imgur.com/a/peV27nE

After the first activation, select_task_rq_rt() fails to find the right CPU
(due to the same move all tasks to the cpumask_fist()) - but when the task
wakes up on 4, the logic I put causes it to migrate to CPU2, which is the 2nd
big core. CPU1 and CPU2 are the big cores on Juno.

Now maybe we should fix select_task_rq_rt() to better balance tasks, but not
sure how easy is that.

Steve suggested the overload idea, so I assumed it's okay. But given the IPI
issue you highlighted, I thought better not make overloaded conditions more
complex and just a take a simpler approach which I think should be fine - bar
the uclamp caveat you highlighted. Which should be solvable..

Thanks
