Subject[PATCH v3 0/3] cpufreq:boost: CPU Boost mode support
Date
This patch series introduces support for CPU overclocking technique
called Boost.

It is a follow up of a LAB governor proposal. Boost is a LAB component:
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1484746/match=cpufreq

Boost unifies hardware based solution (e.g. Intel Nehalem) with
software oriented one (like the one done at Exynos).
For this reason cpufreq/freq_table code has been reorganized to include
common code.

Important design decisions:

- Boost related code is compiled-in unconditionally and disabled by default
The cpufreq_driver is responsibile for providing set_boost_freq callback
(if needed)

- struct cpufreq_driver has been extended with boost related fields:
-- boost_supported - when driver supports boosting
-- set_boost_freq - callback to function, which is necessary to
enable boost at the processor (like it is done at Intel)

- Boost sysfs attributies are seen only when cpufreq driver supports them.
They will not show up until either cpufreq_driver defines boost_supported
flag or device tree's cpufreq "boost_mode" attribute.

- No special spin_lock for Boost was created. The one from cpufreq_driver
was reused.

- The Boost code doesn't rely on any policy. When boost state is changed,
then policies attached to each CPU are updated.


Tested at: HW:
Exynos 4412 3.10 linux
Exynos 4210 3.10 linux
Compile tested x86_64 defconfig (acpi) - help with HW (Intel Nehalem) test
needed
