Subject[PATCH v7 4/7] cpufreq:boost:Kconfig: Provide support for software managed BOOST
Date
For safety reasons new flag - CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW has been added.
Only after selecting "EXYNOS Frequency Overclocking - Software" 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_ work without thermal subsystem with properly defined
overheating temperatures.

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.

Changes for v7:
- Remove superfluous "default n" definition
- Generic CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW depends on THERMAL

Changes for v6:
- CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW [1] is now defined as "invisible" bool option.
- Platform dependent ARM_EXYNOS_CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW config option has been
added. It depends on ARM_EXYNOS_CPUFREQ options and selects
EXYNOS_THERMAL with the main boost config [1].

Changes for v5:
- New patch
