Subject: Re: [RFCv2 PATCH 00/23] sched: Energy cost model for energy-aware
 scheduling

Hi Morten,

Thanks, got it. Then another question,

I understand energy_diff_* functions are based on the energy model (though I
have not dived into the detail of how you change load balancing based on
energy_diff_*).

Speaking of the engergy model, I am not sure why elaborate "imprecise" energy
numbers do a better job than only a general statement: higher freq, more cap,
and more power.

Even for big.LITTLE systems, big and little CPUs also follow that statement
respectively. Then it is just a matter of where to place tasks between them.
Under such, the energy model might be useful, but still probably cpu_power_orig
(from Vincent) might be enough.

Thanks,
Yuyang
