[PATCH v4 0/2] Add stop callback to the cpufreq_driver interface.

From: Dirk Brandewie <dirk.j.brandewie@xxxxxxxxx>

Change to only call ->stop() callback for drivers exposing the
->set_policy() callback.

Changed the calling of the ->stop() callback to be conditional on the
core being the last core controlled by a given policy.

Change name of callback function added to cpufreq_driver interface.

Some drivers (intel_pstate) need to modify state on a core before it
is completely offline. The ->exit() callback is executed during the
CPU_POST_DEAD phase of the cpu offline process which is too late to
change the state of the core.

Patch 1 adds an optional callback function to the cpufreq_driver
interface which is called by the core during the CPU_DOWN_PREPARE
phase of cpu offline in __cpufreq_remove_dev_prepare().

Patch 2 changes intel_pstate to use the ->stop callback to do
its cleanup during cpu offline.

Dirk Brandewie (2):
cpufreq: Add exit_prepare callback to cpufreq_driver interface
intel_pstate: Set core to min P state during core offline
