Could you also print if ultra_turbo is enabled ?

powernv_pstate_info.wof_enabled check is not required since we will
bail out of the loop below as j < powernv_pstate_info.max in case when
turbo = ultra-turbo or if ultra-turbo is not defined.

That said, it makes the code more readable so let us keep it.

cleanup_notifiers ?

Looks good otherwise.
