Are you not happy with ifdefs are utility function itself? Can you
explain more how this should be done?

utilization values are not passed with scheduler update util callback.
So need to have access to rq->cfs.avg.util* and rq->dl.running_bw
access from intel_pstate.
The ifdefs can be removed, if we remove ifdefs for cpu_util_dl() or
cpu_util_cfs(), which are not doing anything special other than
accessing rq->cfs.avg.util* and rq->dl.running_bw. I think it is better
to remove from these functions.

Correct. I am just following other interface functions for sched util
hooks in this file which are using EXPORT.
But I will remove EXPORT in the next revision.
