I think it could be merged in patch 1/2 as it's part of enabling the use
of multiple sources of information for FIE. Up to you!

You still need these checks, otherwise you could end up with only part
of the CPUs setting a scale factor, when only part of the CPUs support
AMUs and there is no cpufreq support for FIE.

Small(ish) optimisation at the beginning of this function:

    if (cpumask_empty(&scale_freq_counters_mask))
        scale_freq_invariant = topology_scale_freq_invariant();

This will save you a call to rebuild_sched_domains_energy(), which is
quite expensive, when cpufreq supports FIE and we also have counters.

..for 1/2 and this addition.


Thanks,
