Given the maturity gained by cpufreq-based Frequency Invariance (FI)
support following the patches at [1], this series conditions Energy
Aware Scheduling (EAS) enablement on a frequency invariant system.

Currently, EAS can be enabled on a system without FI support, leading
to incorrect (energy-wise) task placements. As no warning is emitted,
it could take some debugging effort to track the behavior back to the
lack of FI support; this series changes that by disabling EAS
(and advertising it) when FI support is missing.

The series is structured as follows:
 - 1/3 - create function that can rebuild the scheduling and EAS'
   performance domains if EAS' initial conditions change
 - 2/3 - arm64: rebuild scheduling and performance domains in the
         case of late, counter-driven FI initialisation.
 - 3/3 - condition EAS enablement on FI support

This series is based on linux-next 20200928. This series depends on
patches at [1] which are now in the linux-next/20200928 base.

v1 -> v2:
 - v1 can be found at [2]
 - 1/2 - moved now "static inline" rebuild_sched_domains_energy() stub
   in sched/topology.h header, as suggested by Quentin.
 - Changed the order of 2/3 and 3/3 to maintain bisection as suggested
   by Quentin.
 - 3/3 - place the warning under sched_debug() as per Quentin and
   Dietmar's recommendations.
