IMHO this is not a very good solution. With the CPU running at, say, a fifth of its nominal performance, you can't expect that it will behave in a remotely similar way.
The norminal speed is 3.4 GHz. The minimum speed is 1.6 GHz. Timings are just the double between nominal and minimum speed.
On my laptop, the speed ranges between 500MHz and 2300MHz.
- (Use NOHZ_FULL but) Force frequency to the maximum
- Don't use NOHZ_FULL
I think we should force the frequency to a single number which is the maximum that can be reasonably sustained (I mean, not the overclocked speed done by some CPUs for short amounts of time).
