Just as an FYI, I wrote this code a long time ago. I was planning on
rewriting the integration of CPU freq inputs to devfreq anyway because
notifiers are discouraged and I've had other ideas on how I could do
it. But I haven't dug into that yet.

Honestly I'd prefer waiting till the required-opps support for passive
governor patch is merged before digging too much into this. And I plan
to take a stab at this after that.

Thanks,
Saravana
