Ok. Please see below proposition.

1. at ./drivers/cpufreq/Kconfig:

+config CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW
+ bool
+ depends on THERMAL

2. at ./drivers/cpufreq/Kconfig.arm:

+config ARM_EXYNOS_CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW
+ bool "EXYNOS Frequency Overclocking - Software"
+ depends on ARM_EXYNOS_CPUFREQ
+ select CPU_FREQ_BOOST_SW
+ select EXYNOS_THERMAL
+ default n
+ help
+ This driver supports software managed overclocking (BOOST).
+ It allows usage of special frequencies for Samsung Exynos
+ processors if thermal conditions are appropriate.
+
+ It reguires, for safe operation, thermal framework with
properly
+ defined trip points.
+
+ If in doubt, say N.
+

Shall I split this patch to two (1. and 2.) or leave it as a single one?
