Subject[PATCH 3/4] cpufreq: Add per policy governor-init/exit infrastructure
Date
Currently, there can't be multiple instances of single governor_type. If we have
a multi-package system, where we have multiple instances of struct policy (per
package), we can't have multiple instances of same governor. i.e. We can't have
multiple instances of ondemand governor for multiple packages.

Governors directory in sysfs is created at /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/
governor-name/. Which again reflects that there can be only one instance of a
governor_type in the system.

This is a bottleneck for multicluster system, where we want different packages
to use same governor type, but with different tunables.

This patch is inclined towards providing this infrastructure. Because we are
required to allocate governor's resources dynamically now, we must do it at
policy creation and end. And so got CPUFREQ_GOV_POLICY_INIT/EXIT.
