menu "CPU Frequency scaling"
config CPU_FREQ
bool "CPU Frequency scaling"
select SRCU
help
CPU Frequency scaling allows you to change the clock speed of
CPUs on the fly. This is a nice method to save power, because
the lower the CPU clock speed, the less power the CPU consumes.
Note that this driver doesn't automatically change the CPU
clock speed, you need to either enable a dynamic cpufreq governor
(see below) after boot, or use a userspace tool.
For details, take a look at <file:Documentation/cpu-freq>.
If in doubt, say N.

help
This option sets which CPUFreq governor shall be loaded at
startup. If in doubt, select 'performance'.
config CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_PERFORMANCE
bool "performance"
select CPU_FREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE
help
Use the CPUFreq governor 'performance' as default. This sets
the frequency statically to the highest frequency supported by
the CPU.
config CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_POWERSAVE
bool "powersave"
select CPU_FREQ_GOV_POWERSAVE
help
Use the CPUFreq governor 'powersave' as default. This sets
the frequency statically to the lowest frequency supported by
the CPU.
config CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_USERSPACE
bool "userspace"
select CPU_FREQ_GOV_USERSPACE
help
Use the CPUFreq governor 'userspace' as default. This allows
you to set the CPU frequency manually or when a userspace
program shall be able to set the CPU dynamically without having
to enable the userspace governor manually.
config CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_ONDEMAND

select CPU_FREQ_GOV_ONDEMAND
select CPU_FREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE
help
Use the CPUFreq governor 'ondemand' as default. This allows
you to get a full dynamic frequency capable system by simply
loading your cpufreq low-level hardware driver.
Be aware that not all cpufreq drivers support the ondemand
governor. If unsure have a look at the help section of the
driver. Fallback governor will be the performance governor.

Use the CPUFreq governor 'conservative' as default. This allows
you to get a full dynamic frequency capable system by simply
loading your cpufreq low-level hardware driver.
Be aware that not all cpufreq drivers support the conservative
governor. If unsure have a look at the help section of the

config CPU_FREQ_GOV_ONDEMAND
tristate "'ondemand' cpufreq policy governor"
select CPU_FREQ_GOV_COMMON
help
'ondemand' - This driver adds a dynamic cpufreq policy governor.
The governor does a periodic polling and
changes frequency based on the CPU utilization.
The support for this governor depends on CPU capability to
do fast frequency switching (i.e, very low latency frequency
transitions).
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called cpufreq_ondemand.
For details, take a look at linux/Documentation/cpu-freq.
If in doubt, say N.
config CPU_FREQ_GOV_CONSERVATIVE
tristate "'conservative' cpufreq governor"
depends on CPU_FREQ
select CPU_FREQ_GOV_COMMON
help
'conservative' - this driver is rather similar to the 'ondemand'
governor both in its source code and its purpose, the difference is
its optimisation for better suitability in a battery powered
environment. The frequency is gracefully increased and decreased
rather than jumping to 100% when speed is required.
If you have a desktop machine then you should really be considering
the 'ondemand' governor instead, however if you are using a laptop,
PDA or even an AMD64 based computer (due to the unacceptable
step-by-step latency issues between the minimum and maximum frequency
transitions in the CPU) you will probably want to use this governor.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called cpufreq_conservative.
For details, take a look at linux/Documentation/cpu-freq.
If in doubt, say N.

bool "'schedutil' cpufreq policy governor"

select CPU_FREQ_GOV_ATTR_SET
select IRQ_WORK
help
This governor makes decisions based on the utilization data provided
by the scheduler. It sets the CPU frequency to be proportional to
the utilization/capacity ratio coming from the scheduler. If the
utilization is frequency-invariant, the new frequency is also
proportional to the maximum available frequency. If that is not the
case, it is proportional to the current frequency of the CPU. The
frequency tipping point is at utilization/capacity equal to 80% in
both cases.
If in doubt, say N.

This adds the cpufreq driver for SuperH. Any CPU that supports
clock rate rounding through the clock framework can use this
driver. While it will make the kernel slightly larger, this is
harmless for CPUs that don't support rate rounding. The driver
will also generate a notice in the boot log before disabling
itself if the CPU in question is not capable of rate rounding.
