I shall be more verbose here.

The boost option is supposed to provide one solution to control
software based (like is is done with Samsung Exynos4 SoC) and hardware
based (like Intel's Turbo Boost feature) boost.

Support for Intel's boost is already in mainline. Therefore I aimed to
extend cpufreq to also manage software based solutions (e.g. Exynos).
