Subject: [PATCH] Documentation: cpu-freq: Convert core.txt file to ReST format

Convert core file to ReST format, in order to allow it to
be parsed by Sphinx. Make a minor change of correcting the wrong
function name cpufreq_put_cpu to cpufreq_cpu_put.
Also create an index.rst file in cpu-freq and add it's entry
in the main Documentation/index.rst file.

+
+Clock scaling allows you to change the clock speed of the CPUs on the
+fly. This is a nice method to save battery power, because the lower
+the clock speed, the less power the CPU consumes.
+
+
+1. General Information
+----------------------
+
+The CPUFreq core code is located in :file:`drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq.c`. This
+cpufreq code offers a standardized interface for the CPUFreq
+architecture drivers (those pieces of code that do actual
+frequency transitions), as well as to "notifiers". These are device
+drivers or other part of the kernel that need to be informed of
+policy changes (ex. thermal modules like ACPI) or of all
+frequency changes (ex. timing code) or even need to force certain
+speed limits (like LCD drivers on ARM architecture). Additionally, the
+kernel "constant" :c:data:`loops_per_jiffy` is updated on frequency changes
+here.
+
+Reference counting of the cpufreq policies is done by :c:func:`cpufreq_cpu_put`
+and :c:func:`cpufreq_cpu_put`, which make sure that the cpufreq driver is
+correctly registered with the core, and will not be unloaded until
+:c:func:`cpufreq_cpu_put` is called. That also ensures that the respective cpufreq
+policy doesn't get freed while being used.
+
+2. CPUFreq notifiers
+--------------------
+
+CPUFreq notifiers conform to the standard kernel notifier interface.
+See :file:`linux/include/linux/notifier.h` for details on notifiers.
+
+There are two different CPUFreq notifiers - policy notifiers and
+transition notifiers.
+
+
+2.1 CPUFreq policy notifiers
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+These are notified when a new policy is intended to be set. Each
+CPUFreq policy notifier is called twice for a policy transition:
+
+        1) During :c:macro:`CPUFREQ_ADJUST` all CPUFreq notifiers may change
+           the limit if they see a need for this - may it be thermal considerations
+           or hardware limitations.
+
+        2) And during :c:macro:`CPUFREQ_NOTIFY` all notifiers are informed of the
+           new policy - if two hardware drivers failed to agree on a new policy
+           before this stage, the incompatible hardware shall be shut down, and the user
+           informed of this.
+
+The phase is specified in the second argument to the notifier.
+
+The third argument, a :c:data:`void *pointer`, points to a :c:type:`struct cpufreq_policy`
+consisting of several values, including min, max (the lower and upper
+frequencies (in kHz) of the new policy).
+
+
+2.2 CPUFreq transition notifiers
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+These are notified twice for each online CPU in the policy, when the
+CPUfreq driver switches the CPU core frequency and this change has no
+any external implications.
+
+The second argument specifies the phase - :c:macro:`CPUFREQ_PRECHANGE` or
+:c:macro:`CPUFREQ_POSTCHANGE`.
+
+The third argument is a :c:type:`struct cpufreq_freqs` with the following
+values:
+
+| cpu   - number of the affected CPU
+| old   - old frequency
+| new   - new frequency
+| flags - flags of the cpufreq driver
+
+
+3. CPUFreq Table Generation with Operating Performance Point (OPP)
+------------------------------------------------------------------
+For details about OPP, see :file:`Documentation/power/opp.txt`
+
+:c:func:`dev_pm_opp_init_cpufreq_table` - This function provides a ready
+to use conversion routine to translate the OPP layer's internal information
+about the available frequencies into a format readily providable to cpufreq.
+
+WARNING: Do not use this function in interrupt context.
+
+	Example::
+
+	 soc_pm_init()
+	 {
+		/* Do things */
+		r = dev_pm_opp_init_cpufreq_table(dev, &freq_table);
+		if (!r)
+			policy->freq_table = freq_table;
+		/* Do other things */
+	 }
+
+NOTE: This function is available only if CONFIG_CPU_FREQ is enabled in
+addition to CONFIG_PM_OPP.
+
