SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/5] cpufreq:boost: Add support for software based CPU frequency boost

I hope you agreed to all the other comments I gave as I don't see an

in past, so what would be better to do is:
- either reply below each one of them and say yes or no..
- Or write once below many comments and say: All above comments
are accepted.

So, that Reviewer is assured that you haven't missed anything.

I understand that you need these variables (I will still look how you are
using them in next version). But they are per policy and driver isn't
responsible for maintaining them. If they are required then cpufreq
core must find them out and keep in struct cpufreq_policy (as they
are policy dependent)..

So, remove this structure from cpufreq_driver and embed variables
