SubjectRE: [PATCH] cpufreq: Add Kryo CPU scaling driver
Date
There are 2 CPU clusters in the Kryo, CPU 0 and 1 are called Silver Cluster
and CPU 2 and 3 - Gold Cluster. Each cluster has single clock. The clusters
differ in terms of speed capabilities, computing power and power
consumption. Therefore, I define separate OPP table for each cluster, and my
driver will choose the appropriate OPP subset for each cluster.
Lead refers to first CPU in the cluster.
