Thanks, I had a puzzle to came up with a good short name :-).

The purpose of the condition [*] here is to prevent from enabling
boost when thermal for Exynos is not supported.

Only for properly configured Exynos (when thermal + cpufreq is set) the
option is possible to enable. And by default it is disabled.
This shall prevent from accidental boost usage.


Please also note, that this switch only affects software based
boost. The HW boost (Intel ACPI) support doesn't depend on this Kconfig
setting.
