powersave_bias should be a useful feature, which give user an
opportunity to set the CPU to work at wider average frequency accord to real
workload requirement, not just CPU frequency specific at P0,P1,...Pn.
At the same time, it meets end user power comsumpation requirement in
some degree.
Unfortunately, it does not work for a long time.

Thanks
