One of the reasons this patch was sent as an RFC was to get an idea
whether it would be feasible to add support for
DEVFREQ_POLICY_NOTIFIER before spending much time implementing a
driver that relies on it, and then possibly hear that it's not going
to fly.

However since you didn't voice general concerns about the idea I made
progress with the driver in the last days. I'll polish it a bit more
and send it in a series with related devfreq patches.
