Pull power management and ACPI updates from Rafael Wysocki: "This time the majority of changes go into cpufreq and they are significant. First off, the way CPU frequency updates are triggered is different now. Instead of having to set up and manage a deferrable timer for each CPU in the system to evaluate and possibly change its frequency periodically, cpufreq governors set up callbacks to be invoked by the scheduler on a regular basis (basically on utilization updates). The "old" governors, "ondemand" and "conservative", still do all of their work in process context (although that is triggered by the scheduler now), but intel_pstate does it all in the callback invoked by the scheduler with no need for any additional asynchronous processing. Of course, this eliminates the overhead related to the management of all those timers, but also it allows the cpufreq governor code to be simplified quite a bit. On top of that, the common code and data structures used by the "ondemand" and "conservative" governors are cleaned up and made more straightforward and some long-standing and quite annoying problems are addressed. In particular, the handling of governor sysfs attributes is modified and the related locking becomes more fine grained which allows some concurrency problems to be avoided (particularly deadlocks with the core cpufreq code). In principle, the new mechanism for triggering frequency updates allows utilization information to be passed from the scheduler to cpufreq. Although the current code doesn't make use of it, in the works is a new cpufreq governor that will make decisions based on the scheduler's utilization data. That should allow the scheduler and cpufreq to work more closely together in the long run. In addition to the core and governor changes, cpufreq drivers are updated too. Fixes and optimizations go into intel_pstate, the cpufreq-dt driver is updated on top of some modification in the Operating Performance Points (OPP) framework and there are fixes and other updates in the powernv cpufreq driver. Apart from the cpufreq updates there is some new ACPICA material, including a fix for a problem introduced by previous ACPICA updates, and some less significant changes in the ACPI code, like CPPC code optimizations, ACPI processor driver cleanups and support for loading ACPI tables from initrd. Also updated are the generic power domains framework, the Intel RAPL power capping driver and the turbostat utility and we have a bunch of traditional assorted fixes and cleanups. Specifics: - Redesign of cpufreq governors and the intel_pstate driver to make them use callbacks invoked by the scheduler to trigger CPU frequency evaluation instead of using per-CPU deferrable timers for that purpose (Rafael Wysocki). - Reorganization and cleanup of cpufreq governor code to make it more straightforward and fix some concurrency problems in it (Rafael Wysocki, Viresh Kumar). - Cleanup and improvements of locking in the cpufreq core (Viresh Kumar). - Assorted cleanups in the cpufreq core (Rafael Wysocki, Viresh Kumar, Eric Biggers). - intel_pstate driver updates including fixes, optimizations and a modification to make it enable enable hardware-coordinated P-state selection (HWP) by default if supported by the processor (Philippe Longepe, Srinivas Pandruvada, Rafael Wysocki, Viresh Kumar, Felipe Franciosi). - Operating Performance Points (OPP) framework updates to improve its handling of voltage regulators and device clocks and updates of the cpufreq-dt driver on top of that (Viresh Kumar, Jon Hunter). - Updates of the powernv cpufreq driver to fix initialization and cleanup problems in it and correct its worker thread handling with respect to CPU offline, new powernv_throttle tracepoint (Shilpasri Bhat). - ACPI cpufreq driver optimization and cleanup (Rafael Wysocki). - ACPICA updates including one fix for a regression introduced by previos changes in the ACPICA code (Bob Moore, Lv Zheng, David Box, Colin Ian King). - Support for installing ACPI tables from initrd (Lv Zheng). - Optimizations of the ACPI CPPC code (Prashanth Prakash, Ashwin Chaugule). - Support for _HID(ACPI0010) devices (ACPI processor containers) and ACPI processor driver cleanups (Sudeep Holla). - Support for ACPI-based enumeration of the AMBA bus (Graeme Gregory, Aleksey Makarov). - Modification of the ACPI PCI IRQ management code to make it treat 255 in the Interrupt Line register as "not connected" on x86 (as per the specification) and avoid attempts to use that value as a valid interrupt vector (Chen Fan). - ACPI APEI fixes related to resource leaks (Josh Hunt). - Removal of modularity from a few ACPI drivers (BGRT, GHES, intel_pmic_crc) that cannot be built as modules in practice (Paul Gortmaker). - PNP framework update to make it treat ACPI_RESOURCE_TYPE_SERIAL_BUS as a valid resource type (Harb Abdulhamid). - New device ID (future AMD I2C controller) in the ACPI driver for AMD SoCs (APD) and in the designware I2C driver (Xiangliang Yu). - Assorted ACPI cleanups (Colin Ian King, Kaiyen Chang, Oleg Drokin). - cpuidle menu governor optimization to avoid a square root computation in it (Rasmus Villemoes). - Fix for potential use-after-free in the generic device properties framework (Heikki Krogerus). - Updates of the generic power domains (genpd) framework including support for multiple power states of a domain, fixes and debugfs output improvements (Axel Haslam, Jon Hunter, Laurent Pinchart, Geert Uytterhoeven). - Intel RAPL power capping driver updates to reduce IPI overhead in it (Jacob Pan). - System suspend/hibernation code cleanups (Eric Biggers, Saurabh Sengar). - Year 2038 fix for the process freezer (Abhilash Jindal). - turbostat utility updates including new features (decoding of more registers and CPUID fields, sub-second intervals support, GFX MHz and RC6 printout, --out command line option), fixes (syscall jitter detection and workaround, reductioin of the number of syscalls made, fixes related to Xeon x200 processors, compiler warning fixes) and cleanups (Len Brown, Hubert Chrzaniuk, Chen Yu)" * tag 'pm+acpi-4.6-rc1-1' of git:// (182 commits) tools/power turbostat: bugfix: TDP MSRs print bits fixing tools/power turbostat: correct output for MSR_NHM_SNB_PKG_CST_CFG_CTL dump tools/power turbostat: call __cpuid() instead of __get_cpuid() tools/power turbostat: indicate SMX and SGX support tools/power turbostat: detect and work around syscall jitter tools/power turbostat: show GFX%rc6 tools/power turbostat: show GFXMHz tools/power turbostat: show IRQs per CPU tools/power turbostat: make fewer systems calls tools/power turbostat: fix compiler warnings tools/power turbostat: add --out option for saving output in a file tools/power turbostat: re-name "%Busy" field to "Busy%" tools/power turbostat: Intel Xeon x200: fix turbo-ratio decoding tools/power turbostat: Intel Xeon x200: fix erroneous bclk value tools/power turbostat: allow sub-sec intervals ACPI / APEI: ERST: Fixed leaked resources in erst_init ACPI / APEI: Fix leaked resources intel_pstate: Do not skip samples partially intel_pstate: Remove freq calculation from intel_pstate_calc_busy() intel_pstate: Move intel_pstate_calc_busy() into get_target_pstate_use_performance() ...
