sched: Make tunable scaling style configurable
Christian Ehrhardt [Mon, 30 Nov 2009 11:16:47 +0000 (12:16 +0100)]
As scaling now takes place on all kind of cpu add/remove events a user
that configures values via proc should be able to configure if his set
values are still rescaled or kept whatever happens.

As the comments state that log2 was just a second guess that worked the
interface is not just designed for on/off, but to choose a scaling type.
Currently this allows none, log and linear, but more important it allwos
us to keep the interface even if someone has an even better idea how to
scale the values.
