Subject: [PATCH v3 0/3] devfreq: Add support for devices which can idle
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 21st September 2012 15:11:55 UTC (over 4 years ago)
This patchset updates devfreq core to add support for devices
which can idle. When device idleness is detected perhaps
through runtime-pm, need some mechanism to suspend devfreq
load monitoring and resume when device is back online.

patch 1 introduce core design changes - per device work, decouple
delayed work from core and event based interaction.
patch 2 add devfreq suspend and resume apis.
patch 3 add new sysfs attribute for governor predicted next target
frequency and callback for current device frequency.

The existing devfreq apis are kept intact. Two new apis
devfreq_suspend_device() and devfreq_resume_device() are
added to support suspend/resume of device devfreq.

Changes since v1:
- revised locking mechanism
- added kerneldoc comments for load monitoring helper functions
- Fixed minor review comments

Changes since v2:
- added new helper function for polling interval update
- Handled work suspend/resume contention between devfreq driver
and sysfs
