[CPUFREQ] Introduce global, not per core: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq
Thomas Renninger [Fri, 24 Jul 2009 13:25:05 +0000 (15:25 +0200)]
Currently everything in the cpufreq layer is per core based.
This does not reflect reality, for example ondemand on conservative
governors have global sysfs variables.

Introduce a global cpufreq directory and add the kobject to the governor
struct, so that governors can easily access it.
The directory is initialized in the cpufreq_core_init initcall and thus will
always be created if cpufreq is compiled in, even if no cpufreq driver is
active later.
