Show me the policy tunables here.

So make a /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policies/ and add
functionality to assign cpus to policies or whatever the design of this
thing will be.

What are those systems? Examples?

Single-image solutions will enable that config option and get built with
it - no problem at all.
