Subject[PATCH 2/2] thermal: power allocator: estimate sustainable power only once
The sustainable power value might come from the Device Tree or can be
estimated in run time. There is no need to estimate every time when the
governor is called and temperature is high. Instead, store the estimated
value and make it available via standard sysfs interface so it can be
checked from the user-space.
