Hmm, I am not sure why we should be doing it. In case of cpuidle many
parts of the kernel are playing with cpuidle code, like drivers/idle/,
drivers/cpuidle, etc.

Something should land in include/ only if you want others to use it,
but in case of cpufreq no one should be using cpufreq stats.

So unless you have a real case where that might be beneficial, I am
going to keep it as is.
