What about DL params (runtime, deadline, period)?

Uclamp is not for DL but we could (*) still set uclamp values on a DL
task. Obviously they would only be used when the task switches policy.

On tip/sched/core:

root@juno:~# chrt -d -P 1000000000 -T 100000000 -p 0 1671

root@juno:~# uclampset -m200 -M400 -p 1671

root@juno:~# cat /proc/1671/sched | grep uclamp
uclamp.min                                   :                  200
uclamp.max                                   :                  400
effective uclamp.min                         :                  200
effective uclamp.max                         :                  400

root@juno:~# chrt -o -p 0
pid 1702's current scheduling policy: SCHED_OTHER
pid 1702's current scheduling priority: 0

root@juno:~# cat /proc/1671/sched | grep uclamp
uclamp.min                                   :                  200
uclamp.max                                   :                  400
effective uclamp.min                         :                  200
effective uclamp.max                         :                  400

(*) This changes the behaviour when setting uclamp values on a DL task.

Before uclamp values could be set but now, because of

  void __getparam_dl(struct task_struct *p, struct sched_attr *attr)
    ..
    attr->sched_flags = dl_se->flags

SCHED_FLAG_UTIL_CLAMP gets overwritten and  __sched_setscheduler() bails in:

    if (unlikely(policy == p->policy)) {
      ...
      retval = 0;
      goto unlock;
    }
  change:

I.e. the:

      if (attr->sched_flags & SCHED_FLAG_UTIL_CLAMP)
        goto change;

can't trigger anymore.

SCHED_FLAG_KEEP_PARAMS is handled here but SCHED_FLAG_KEEP_POLICY
outside (before) the `if (likely(p))`?
