[PATCH v2 4/6] cpufreq: schedutil: update CFS util only if used

From: Patrick Bellasi
Date: Tue Jul 04 2017 - 13:35:23 EST

Currently the utilization of the FAIR class is collected before locking
the policy. Although that should not be a big issue for most cases, we
also don't really know how much latency there can be between the
utilization reading and its usage.

Let's get the FAIR utilization right before its usage to be better in
sync with the current status of a CPU.
