SubjectRE: [PATCH 1/1] subsystem: CPU FREQUENCY DRIVERS- Set cpu_load calculation on current frequency
Hello Viresh,

Thank you for your reply and the information. :)

I have created the patch using the "diff -up" command, I think this way should be used to create patches as mentioned in Documentation/SubmittingPatches..

Could you please help me to know whether any kernel release using interactive governor ? or any way to share the patch the same in any kernel release.

Otherwise I will share the patch to Android guys.

Your company probably uses Microsoft exchange server (All do) and that corrupts these mails badly.. Over that I don't know what tool you used to send the patch as it doesn't look like 'git' for sure.. But that's not really a problem if you do it correctly..

.orig ??

And that too on interactive governor. Before sending patches to Linux kernel, go through the rules please. Documentation/SubmittingPatches..

If you have gone through that it would have been nicer, anyway lets proceed.
You haven't rebased this on any kernel or rc release of official Linux kernel, but on some release on Android.

Android is kept separately and interactive governor is not part of mainline kernel.
If you want this patch to go through, you need to use gerrit to send it to Android guys..
