Hi Ionela,

I used the latest mainline kernel with sched/ tip merged in for my
testing. My hikey960 did not have any fan or heat sink during testing. I
disabled cpu cooling for little cores in the dts files.
Also I have to warn you that I have managed to blow up my hikey960. So I
no longer have a functional board for past two weeks or so.

I don't have my test scripts to send you, but I have some of the results
files downloaded which I can send you in a separate email.
I did run the test 10 rounds.

Also I think 20s is too much of variation for the test results. Like I
mentioned in my previous emails I think the 7.52 is an anomaly but the
results should be around the range of 8-9 s.

Thara
