Thomas,

Will the update patch below address your concerns for this patch?
Please let us know if you have any other additional comments about
this series.  We'll like to address all of them before we post
an update to the series.

Thanks.

From: Tim Chen <tim.c.c...@linux.intel.com>
Subject: [PATCH 5/6 v5 - update proposal] x86/sysctl: Add sysctl for ITMT 
scheduling feature

Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 (ITMT) feature
allows some cores to be boosted to higher turbo
frequency than others.

Add /proc/sys/kernel/sched_itmt_enabled so operator
can enable/disable scheduling of tasks that favor cores
with higher turbo boost frequency potential.

By default, system that is ITMT capable and single
socket has this feature turned on.  It is more likely
to be lightly loaded and operates in Turbo range.

When there is a change in the ITMT scheduling operation
desired, a rebuild of the sched domain is initiated
so the scheduler can set up sched domains with appropriate
flag to enable/disable ITMT scheduling operations.
