cpus (cpumask of the perf domain), frequency (OPP's of the perf domain) 
and power (values at those OPP's) are somehow easy to grasp, cost is 
definitely not.

You have this nice description in em_pd_energy() what cost actually is. 
IMHO, might be worth repeating this at least in the patch header here.
