Did you and Vincent agreed at the end to use `cap_orig - _instantaneous_
thermal pressure` (1) here?

Last email in v1 from Vincent on this one was
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20220722151300.GA30193@vingu-book :

"Using capacity_orig_of(cpu) - thermal_load_avg(rq_of(cpu)) seems like
a simple solution to cover thermal mitigation".

And there is no Acked-By/Reviewed-By so far.

We use (1) in feec() to cater for the thermal throttling (thermal
restricting policy->max) schedutil takes into account immediately when
asking for frequency (performance). EAS and schedutil should see the
same thing.

Do you want to use the same in util_fits_cpu() since it's used in feec()?
