Actually, that is my original idea, but once I move the trace into
include/trace/events/power.h, the amd-pstate driver cannot build as "ko"
anymore. This is the early stage, "ko" is friendly and flexible for us to
switch and compare between amd-pstate and acpi-cpufreq. I can move it into
"power" trace events once we address the performance issue on shared memory
solution.

Thanks,
Ray
