Subject: drm/i915: Use the real cpu max frequency for ring scaling
The policy's max frequency is not equal to the CPU's max frequency. The
ring frequency is derived from the CPU frequency, and not the policy
frequency.
One example of how this may differ through sysfs. If the sysfs max
frequency is modified, that will be used for the max ring frequency
calculation.
(/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq). As far as I
know, no current governor uses anything but max as the default, but in
theory, they could. Similarly distributions might set policy as part of
their init process.
It's ideal to use the real frequency because when we're currently scaled
up on the GPU. In this case we likely want to race to idle, and using a
less than max ring frequency is non-optimal for this situation.
AFAIK, this patch should have no impact on a majority of people.
This behavior hasn't been changed since it was first introduced:
