    Subject[PATCH 2/2] xen/cpufreq: Disable the cpu frequency scaling drivers from loading.
    By using the functionality provided by "[CPUFREQ]: provide
    disable_cpuidle() function to disable the API."

    Under the Xen hypervisor we do not want the initial domain to exercise
    the cpufreq scaling drivers. This is b/c the Xen hypervisor is
    in charge of doing this as well and we can end up with both the
    Linux kernel and the hypervisor trying to change the P-states
    leading to weird performance issues.
