[PATCH v5 0/5] Devfreq cooling device

From: Javi Merino
Date: Thu Aug 27 2015 - 06:56:28 EST

This series introduces a devfreq cooling device in the thermal
framework. Devfreq is used for DVFS for devices other than the CPUs.
With a devfreq cooling device, the thermal framework can throttle them
to control temperature. The cooling device has the power extensions,
so it can be used by all governors in the thermal framework, including
the power allocator governor.

Changes since v4:
- Don't introduce a new function in the OPP library and instead fix
dev_pm_opp_get_voltage() as suggested by Viresh Kumar
- Don't allocate memory under RCU
- Don't call dev_pm_opp_enable/disable under RCU
- Generate the frequency table even if the power extensions were
not provided

Changes since v3:
- Made devfreq_update_stats() a static inline function
- Add dev_pm_get_voltage_always() to get the voltage even for
disabled OPPs
- Don't rely on freq_table from the devfreq->profile being present
and create our own
- Don't use devm_k* to allocate memory
- Move struct devfreq_cooling_register to devfreq_cooling.c

Javi Merino (4):
PM / devfreq: cache the last call to get_dev_status()
PM / OPP: get the voltage for all OPPs
devfreq_cooling: add trace information
PM / devfreq: drop comment about thermal setting max_freq
