Could you take patch 1/3 and patch 2/3 via your PM tree,
please? I will be very grateful.

These patches just update the documentation and comments regarding
an issue that we can have: bogoWatts in the Energy Model (and we
already have). One of the drawbacks is that we cannot derive real energy
from these numbers. Will see how this would evolve.

The patch 3/3 with dt-binding is not going to fly upstream [1].
I hope developers will put a real number in DT so we could
have real milliWatts from that source (wishful thinking).
Doug even made a script, which might be helpful for that [2].

Regards,
Lukasz
