Subject[RFC][PATCH 1/7] Initial power driver interface infrastructure
Date
Infrastructure for power driver registration and defines three initial
power driver interface calls: go_faster(), go_slower(), and
at_max_capacity(). The intention is to use these to guide scheduling
decisions and frequency state selection in the power driver.
