Subject: [GIT PULL] power utilities update

Hi Rafael,

Please pull these power utilities patches.

The x86_energy_perf_policy(8) utility grows the ability
to manage HWP.EPP (and Hardware P-states, in-general),
on top of its previous ability to manage EPB.

Linux-4.11 grew the ability to disable the cpufreq sub-system entirely
with "". On such a system, this utility
is a convenient way to enable HWP with no kernel cpufreq overhead:

sudo x86_energy_perf_policy --cpu all normal

During this effort, we noticed the EPP defaults hard-coded
into the intel_state driver were not optimal, so those are updated too.

Len Brown, Intel Open Source Technology Center
