Ok in this case it will be better to drop the 2/3 and add a small series
doing for the cpu_cooling.c


/* structure freq */

/* power2state */

/* state2power*/

/* getrequestedpower */

/* All functions needed for the above */


static struct thermal_cooling_device_ops cpufreq_cooling_ops = {
.get_max_state = cpufreq_get_max_state,
.get_cur_state = cpufreq_get_cur_state,
.set_cur_state = cpufreq_set_cur_state,
.get_requested_power = cpufreq_get_requested_power,
.state2power = cpufreq_state2power,
.power2state = cpufreq_power2state,

So you don't have to care about ENERGY_MODEL to be set as

I think the result for cpu_cooling.c will be even more cleaner with the
em change.
