OK ... And is the same thing happening if you just run mainline w/o the
dynamic-power-coefficient binding set for example ? The result _should_
be the same. If not, then perhaps I missed something. I'll try to
reproduce on my end. Just to be sure, when you say hikey, you mean
hikey960 ? Or 620 ? In any case, thanks for testing :-)

Right, I've been wondering the same thing. I'm not a big fan of 'select'
because enabling ENERGY_MODEL automatically for the thermal stuff will
also happen to enable other things (EAS) without the user knowing. So
I'd rather keep the ENERGY_MODEL option explicit.

But perhaps having THERMAL_GOV_POWER_ALLOCATOR 'depend on ENERGY_MODEL'
could work. It's just that there is no _strong_ dependency, the IPA code
isn't supposed to crash even if there is no EM ...

Thanks,
Quentin
