Quentin Perret - Dec. 3, 2018, 9:56 a.m.
In preparation for the definition of an energy-aware wakeup path,
introduce a helper function to estimate the consequence on system energy
when a specific task wakes-up on a specific CPU. compute_energy()
estimates the capacity state to be reached by all performance domains
and estimates the consumption of each online CPU according to its Energy
Model and its percentage of busy time.
