SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 5/7] cpufreq: Calculate number of busy CPUs

How can we take this assumption. What about a cpu which is only 70-80%
busy? So, we would be running at around 70% of policy->max.. Now at
this point you want to enable boost frequency and so that will happen for
all cores... Wouldn't that burn your chip?

Not required.

do this only when boost is enabled.
