This patch provides USF(User Sensitive Feedback factor) auxiliary
cpufreq governor to support high level layer sysfs inodes setting for
util adjustment purpose from the identified scenario on portable
equipment. Because the power consumption and UI response are more cared
for by portable equipment users. And the "screen off" status stands for
no request from the user, however, the kernel is still expected to
notify the user in time on modem, network or powerkey events occur. USF
provides "non_ux_r" sysfs inode to cut down the utils from user space
tasks according to high level scenario. In addition, it usually hints
more cpufreq demand that the preemptive counts of the tasks on the cpu
burst and over the user expecting completed time such as the ratio
sysctl_sched_latency to sysctl_sched_min_granularity on "screen on"
status, which more likely with more UI. The sysfs inodes "up_l0_r" and
"down_r" have been provided to adjust the utils according to high level
identified scenario to alloc the cpufreq in time.
