Subject[PATCH v4 6/7] cpufreq: Enable software boost only when up to one busy core is running
Date
This patch adds protection from accidental enable of boost at systems,
which supports software boosting.

Boost software mode can be only enabled when up to one busy (with heavy
load) core is available on the system. Such approach brings extra
protection from over heating.

Moreover the boost is automatically disabled, when cpufreq core detects
more busy cores.
