    cpufreq: Add CPUFREQ_NO_AUTO_DYNAMIC_SWITCHING cpufreq driver flag · fe829ed8
    Viresh Kumar authored
    The policy->transition_latency field is used for multiple purposes
    today and its not straight forward at all. This is how it is used:
    A. Set the correct transition_latency value.
    B. Set it to CPUFREQ_ETERNAL because:
       1. We don't want automatic dynamic switching (with
          ondemand/conservative) to happen at all.
       2. We don't know the transition latency.
    This patch handles the B.1. case in a more readable way. A new flag for
    the cpufreq drivers is added to disallow use of cpufreq governors which
    have dynamic_switching flag set.
    All the current cpufreq drivers which are setting transition_latency
    unconditionally to CPUFREQ_ETERNAL are updated to use it. They don't
    need to set transition_latency anymore.
    There shouldn't be any functional change after this patch.
