Oh, ok... got it what you mean now.

With:

   [PATCH v6 01/16] sched/core: Allow sched_setattr() to use the current policy
   <20190115101513.2822-2-patrick.bellasi@....com>

we can call __sched_setscheduler() with:

   attr->sched_flags & SCHED_FLAG_KEEP_POLICY

whenever we want just to change the clamp values of a task without
changing its class. Thus, we can end up returning from
__sched_setscheduler() without doing an actual dequeue/enqueue.

This is likely the most common use-case.

I'll better check if I can propagate this info and avoid M2 if we
actually did a dequeue/enqueue.

Cheers Patrick
