Subject: [PATCH V3 1/2] cpufreq: schedutil: Don't skip freq update when limits change
Date: Fri,  2 Aug 2019 11:14:29 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <7dedb6bd157b8183c693bb578e25e313cf4f451d.1564724511.git.viresh.kumar@linaro.org> (raw)

To avoid reducing the frequency of a CPU prematurely, we skip reducing
the frequency if the CPU had been busy recently.

This should not be done when the limits of the policy are changed, for
example due to thermal throttling. We should always get the frequency
within the new limits as soon as possible.

Trying to fix this by using only one flag, i.e. need_freq_update, can
lead to a race condition where the flag gets cleared without forcing us
to change the frequency at least once. And so this patch introduces
another flag to avoid that race condition.

Fixes: ecd288429126 ("cpufreq: schedutil: Don't set next_freq to UINT_MAX")
Cc: v4.18+ <stable@vger.kernel.org> # v4.18+

V2->V3:
- Updated commit log.

V1->V2:
- Fixed the race condition using a different flag.

@Doug: I haven't changed the code since you last tested these. Your
Tested-by tag can be useful while applying the patches. Thanks.
