Subject: [PATCH V6 0/7] cpufreq: Use QoS layer to manage freq-constraints


Sorry about another version after another round of embarrassment over
compilation issues. The same patches have gone through pm/linux-next and
linux-next/master earlier, not sure why the current issues never came up
before. Anyway, they were stupid coding mistakes :(

I have pushed these patches again for the build bot to test, which
should finish before these get merged in PM tree now.

This patchset attempts to manage CPU frequency constraints using the PM
QoS framework. It only does the basic stuff right now and moves the
userspace constraints to use the QoS infrastructure.

- Migrate all users to the QoS framework and get rid of cpufreq specific
- Make PM QoS learn about the relation of CPUs in a policy, so a single
  list of constraints is managed for all of them instead of per-cpu

- Fixed compilation issues with !CONFIG_PM case on riscv architecture.

- A new patch added, 6/7.

- Few commit logs updated as suggested during reviews.
- Separate commit (2/6) to create resume-latency specific routines
- Reused earlier work ("update") for notifiers as well.
- Kept Reviewed-by tags as is as the patches normally got better only.
  Please take them back if you find any issues.

- Add a comment in cpufreq.c as suggested by Qais.
- Rebased on latest pm/linux-next.

- The previous version introduced a completely new framework, this one
  moves to PM QoS instead.
- Lots of changes because of this.

  PM / QOS: Rename __dev_pm_qos_read_value() and
  PM / QOS: Pass request type to dev_pm_qos_read_value()
  PM / QoS: Add support for MIN/MAX frequency constraints
