IMHO, the solution should work for all of heterogeneous systems, (a) w/
cpufreq and driver, (b) w/ cpufreq and no driver loaded (yet) or (c) w/o
cpufreq.

That means that you can't put the benchmarking only into
cpufreq_register_driver() and rely on cpufreq policy topology.

Maybe you could do this for (b) and (c) inside an initcall and use
topology_core_cpumask() to figure out which cpu to profile?

This would then happen w/ the cpu frequency set by the fw.

But this then has to be synchronized somehow with the benchmarking
approach in cpufreq_register_driver().
