+Description:   Discover cpuidle policy and mechanism
+
+               Various CPUs today support multiple idle levels that are
+               differentiated by varying exit latencies and power
+               consumption during idle.
+
+               Idle policy (governor) is differentiated from idle mechanism
+               (driver)
