Subject[PATCH v5 6/7] cpufreq:boost:Kconfig: Enable software managed BOOST support at Kconfig
Date
For safety reasons new flag - CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW has been added.
Only after selecting "CPU frequency BOOST support" Kconfig option the
software managed boost is enabled. It also selects thermal subsystem
to be compiled in. Thermal is necessary for disabling boost and cooling
down the device when overheating detected.

Boost _MUST_NOT_ be enabled without thermal subsystem with properly
defined temperatures, which indicate overheating.

This option doesn't affect x86's ACPI hardware managed boost support
(i.e. Intel, AMD). In this situation boost management is embedded at
hardware.
