Subject[PATCH V3] powercap/drivers/idle_injection: Add an idle injection framework
Date
Initially, the cpu_cooling device for ARM was changed by adding a new
policy inserting idle cycles. The intel_powerclamp driver does a
similar action.

Instead of implementing idle injections privately in the cpu_cooling
device, move the idle injection code in a dedicated framework and give
the opportunity to other frameworks to make use of it.

The framework relies on the smpboot kthreads which handles via its
mainloop the common code for hotplugging and [un]parking.

This code was previously tested with the cpu cooling device and went
through several iterations. It results now in split code and API
exported in the header file. It was tested with the cpu cooling device
with success.

V3:
- Fixed typos (Viresh Kumar)
- Removed extra blank line (Viresh Kumar)
- Added full stop (Viresh Kumar)
- Fixed Return kerneldoc format (Viresh Kumar)
- Fixed multiple kthreads initialization (Viresh Kumar)
- Fixed rollbacking the actions in the unregister function (Viresh Kumar)
- Make idle injection kthreads name hardcoded
- Kthreads are created in the initcall process

V2: Fixed checkpatch warnings

+ * The idle injection framework proposes a way to force a cpu to enter
+ * an idle state during a specified amount of time for a specified
+ * period.
+ *
+ * It relies on the smpboot kthreads which handles, via its main loop,
+ * the common code for hotplugging and [un]parking.
+ *
+ * At init time, all the kthreads are created and parked.
+ *
+ * A cpumask is specified as parameter for the idle injection
+ * registering function. The kthreads will be synchronized regarding
+ * this cpumask.
+ *
+ * The idle + run duration is specified via the helpers and then the
+ * idle injection can be started at this point.
+ *
+ * A kthread will call play_idle() with the specified idle duration
+ * from above and then will schedule itself. The latest CPU belonging
+ * to the group is in charge of setting the timer for the next idle
+ * injection deadline.
+ *
+ * The task handling the timer interrupt will wakeup all the kthreads
+ * belonging to the cpumask.
