Issue

  • Cpu clockspeed degraded when 'isolcpus' and 'nohz_full' are used on same CPUs with 'intel_pstate' cpufreq driver. An example in following snippet.
# grep mhz -i /proc/cpuinfo 
cpu MHz     : 2299.694
cpu MHz     : 1200.988    ---->>>>>
cpu MHz     : 2300.335
cpu MHz     : 1201.245    ---->>>>>
cpu MHz     : 2299.951
cpu MHz     : 1281.353    ---->>>>>
cpu MHz     : 2299.438
cpu MHz     : 2302.642
