[PATCH RFC 0/3] Per-process power consumption measurement facility

From: Konstantin Krivyakin
Date: Tue Jul 30 2013 - 04:18:01 EST

This patchset adds per-process power consumption measurement facility.
Power consumption is very important on mobile platforms. This code
allows to measure consumed power in Watts*Hours. The consumed power
for process is updated on scheduler switch and depends on current
CPU voltage and frequency.

The formula for computation is: P = C * V^2 * f, where C is a constant
that reflects capacity of the system, V is the current voltage and
f is the current frequency.
(Taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU_power_dissipation).

In this patchset was added implementation for Exynos platform
to demonstrate how it works.

To minimize scheduler impact for each CPU P-state the value of (V^2 *f)
was precomputed at the time of platform initialization.

And to reduce performance impact furthermore, the C constant is multiplied
in userspace.

Konstantin Krivyakin (3):
Add interface to receive current cpu power
Add power consumption counter in task_struct.
Update current cpu power when cpu freq change for exynos.
