I don't think that we cannot choice the all options in Kconfig
at the build time. If we add something like this patch,

we can choice the any options in Kconfig as following:
- polling time (millisecond)
- up threshold
- down threshold
- type of workqueue
- etc ...

Also, there are too much optional value and selectable value
in the linux kernel.

As I said, If you suggest the reasonable data with test result,
I will add the new flag to 'struct devfreq_dev_profile'.
