[PATCH v7 07/15] sched/core: uclamp: Set default clamps for RT tasks




By default FAIR tasks start without clamps, i.e. neither boosted nor
capped, and they run at the best frequency matching their utilization
demand.  This default behavior does not fit RT tasks which instead are
expected to run at the maximum available frequency, if not otherwise
required by explicitly capping them.

Enforce the correct behavior for RT tasks by setting util_min to max
whenever:

 1. a task is switched to the RT class and it does not already have a
    user-defined clamp value assigned.

 2. a task is forked from a parent with RESET_ON_FORK set.

NOTE: utilization clamp values are cross scheduling class attributes and
thus they are never changed/reset once a value has been explicitly
defined from user-space.
