You are right. max_cpu can be other than task_cpu(p) in which case we
migrate the task though it won't fit on the new CPU. While introducing
capacity awareness in RT, Quais made the below change to avoid the
migration. We can do something similar here also.

commit b28bc1e002c2 (sched/rt: Re-instate old behavior in select_task_rq_rt())

Yeah, I meant dl_denstity not dl_bw. Thanks for correcting me. I see that
BW_SHIFT is defined in kernel/sched/sched.h

Thanks,
