Is this going to be duplicate for each architecture enabling this? Why
not make a kernel/Kconfig.energy and link to that from those
architectures using it?

how about adding *slightly* more info here? :) (yes, yes, I know it's an RFC)

"""
Highly experimental energy aware task scheduling.

This will allow the kernel to keep track of energy required for
different capacity levels for a given CPU. That way, the scheduler can
make more informed decisions as to where a newly woken task should be
placed. Heterogenous platform will benefit the most from this option.

Enabling this will add a significant overhead for a task-switch.

If unsure, say N here.
