Readers of this file need extra context here, IMO.

What governor? the files says power allocator, and the title says,
cooling device power API...

I believe it would be more helpful if you could provide extra context in
which the above functions are called, and for what.

What would happen if one pass cdev == NULL?

I am assuming the above two new functions are expected to be used also
outside thermal core, right? If yes, I'd suggest exporting them.
