Subject[Patch v8 3/7] arm,arm64,drivers:Add infrastructure to store and update instantaneous thermal pressure
Date
Add architecture specific APIs to update and track thermal pressure on a
per cpu basis. A per cpu variable thermal_pressure is introduced to keep
track of instantaneous per cpu thermal pressure. Thermal pressure is the
delta between maximum capacity and capped capacity due to a thermal event.

topology_get_thermal_pressure can be hooked into the scheduler specified
arch_cpu_thermal_capacity to retrieve instantaneous thermal pressure of a
cpu.

arch_set_thermal_pressure can be used to update the thermal pressure.

Considering topology_get_thermal_pressure reads thermal_pressure and
arch_set_thermal_pressure writes into thermal_pressure, one can argue for
some sort of locking mechanism to avoid a stale value. But considering
topology_get_thermal_pressure can be called from a system critical path
like scheduler tick function, a locking mechanism is not ideal. This means
that it is possible the thermal_pressure value used to calculate average
thermal pressure for a cpu can be stale for upto 1 tick period.

v6->v7:
- Changed the input argument in arch_set_thermal_pressure from
capped capacity to delta capacity(thermal pressure) as per
Ionela's review comments.
