Always use interactive CPU scaling governor as a default for WeTek Play, WeTek Core and WeTek Hub.

Any specific reason for this? I've never used the interactive governor before so I don't really know what difference this will make.

Users always complain that hotplug is slow. Interactive is the same as ondemand, but scaling happens faster.

HotPlug is a Pig designed to conserve battery life on Mobile devices with ARM SoC's by shutting down CPU Cores, I really don't know why its used on Media player boxes, it does slow AML boxes down.

I actually always use Performance with no Issues, we now know AML deceptively limits the CPU Freq to 1.5GHz anyway, regardless of user configuration - likely to keep SoC heating within usable limits.

Interactive is a nice compromise between flat out Performance and Hotplug. As Codesnake said it scales up to full speed quicker from idle.

A no brainer usefull merge 👍
