Subject: RE: [PATCH 1/3] PM / devfreq: Fix available_governor sysfs

Another thoughts on the characteristics of 'passive' governor:

1. Should we prohibit moving from "others" to "passive"?
2. Should we show "passive" in the available list if it's not passive now?
3. Why don't we show anyway and reject it when actually tries to change?
4. Or should we add a value in devfreq struct that is confired at devfreq
device add, which prohibits changing governors? (and passive will
return error if that flag is not set or it will set the value automatically)

Cheers,
MyungJoo
