Agreed. I am worried about in-kernel users setting random uclamp values too.
Do we really have to restrict in-kernel user?
And avoiding module uclamp abuse is covered by 616d91b68cd5 ("sched:
Remove sched_setscheduler*() EXPORTs").
This series should do most of the work but there are more pieces
From what I see we still need to move the sched_setscheduler() from
include/linux/sched.h to kernel/sched/sched.h. And sched_setattr() too. The
latter has a single user in kernel/trace/trace_selftest.c to create a deadline
task. I think that can be easily wrapped with a similar sched_set_dl()
function and exported instead.
But DL does not have the same issue like the FIFO/RR when it comes to
Not sure if we have to restrict in-kernel user.
