config CPU_FREQ
	bool "CPU Frequency scaling"
	select SRCU
	help
	  CPU Frequency scaling allows you to change the clock speed of 
	  CPUs on the fly. This is a nice method to save power, because 
	  the lower the CPU clock speed, the less power the CPU consumes.

	  Note that this driver doesn't automatically change the CPU
	  clock speed, you need to either enable a dynamic cpufreq governor
	  (see below) after boot, or use a userspace tool.

	  For details, take a look at <file:Documentation/cpu-freq>.

	  If in doubt, say N.

config CPU_FREQ_GOV_ONDEMAND
	tristate "'ondemand' cpufreq policy governor"
	select CPU_FREQ_GOV_COMMON
	help
	  'ondemand' - This driver adds a dynamic cpufreq policy governor.
	  The governor does a periodic polling and 
	  changes frequency based on the CPU utilization.
	  The support for this governor depends on CPU capability to
	  do fast frequency switching (i.e, very low latency frequency
	  transitions). 

	  To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
	  module will be called cpufreq_ondemand.

	  For details, take a look at linux/Documentation/cpu-freq.

	  If in doubt, say N.

config CPU_FREQ_GOV_CONSERVATIVE
	tristate "'conservative' cpufreq governor"
	depends on CPU_FREQ
	select CPU_FREQ_GOV_COMMON
	help
	  'conservative' - this driver is rather similar to the 'ondemand'
	  governor both in its source code and its purpose, the difference is
	  its optimisation for better suitability in a battery powered
	  environment.  The frequency is gracefully increased and decreased
	  rather than jumping to 100% when speed is required.

	  If you have a desktop machine then you should really be considering
	  the 'ondemand' governor instead, however if you are using a laptop,
	  PDA or even an AMD64 based computer (due to the unacceptable
	  step-by-step latency issues between the minimum and maximum frequency
	  transitions in the CPU) you will probably want to use this governor.

	  To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
	  module will be called cpufreq_conservative.

	  For details, take a look at linux/Documentation/cpu-freq.

	  If in doubt, say N.

config CPU_FREQ_GOV_SCHEDUTIL
	bool "'schedutil' cpufreq policy governor"
	depends on CPU_FREQ && SMP
	select CPU_FREQ_GOV_ATTR_SET
	select IRQ_WORK
	help
	  This governor makes decisions based on the utilization data provided
	  by the scheduler.  It sets the CPU frequency to be proportional to
	  the utilization/capacity ratio coming from the scheduler.  If the
	  utilization is frequency-invariant, the new frequency is also
	  proportional to the maximum available frequency.  If that is not the
	  case, it is proportional to the current frequency of the CPU.  The
	  frequency tipping point is at utilization/capacity equal to 80% in
	  both cases.

	  If in doubt, say N.
