Hi Vincent,

In the earlier discussion we listed down the cleanup requirements.
I made a cleanup patch that unifies the sysfs interface as a first
step.

[RFC PATCH v1 0/2] sched: unified sched_powersavings tunables
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1239750

I need to make this scheme generically work on different topology,
which is the real problem that we need to solve.
