Subject[RFC PATCH v3 4/7] thermal: introduce the Power Actor API
Date
This patch introduces the Power Actor API in the thermal framework.
With it, devices that can report their power consumption and control
it can be registered. This base interface is meant to be used to
derive specific power actors, such as a cpu power actor.

+Power Actor API
+===============
+
+The base power actor API is meant to be used to derive specific power
+actors, such as a cpu power actor. When registering, they should call
+`power_actor_register()` with a unique `enum power_actor_types`. When
+unregistering, the power actor should call `power_actor_unregister()`
+with the `struct power_actor *` received in the call to
+`power_actor_register()`.
+
+Callbacks
+---------
+
+1. u32 get_req_power(struct power_actor *actor)
+@actor: a valid `struct power_actor *` registered with
+ `power_actor_register()`
+
+`get_req_power()` returns the current requested power in milliwatts.
+
+2. u32 get_max_power(struct power_actor *actor)
+@actor: a valid `struct power_actor *` registered with
+ `power_actor_register()`
+
+`get_max_power()` returns the maximum power that the device could
+consume if it was fully utilized. It's a function as some devices'
+maximum power consumption can change due to external factors such as
+temperature.
+
+3. int set_power(struct power_actor *actor, u32 power)
+@actor: a valid `struct power_actor *` registered with
+ `power_actor_register()`
+@power: power in milliwatts
+
+`set_power()` should configure the device to consume @power
+milliwatts.
+
+Returns 0 on success, -E* on error.
