Hello Matthias,

Why should we have yet another notifier from an instance of devfreq?
Wouldn't it better to let the current notifier (transition notifier)
handle new events as well by adding possible event states to it?

Anyway, is this the reason why you've separated some data of devfreq
into "policy" struct? (I was wondering why while reading commit 6/11).
