Hi all:

The core frequency is subjected to the process variation in semiconductors.
Not all cores are able to reach the maximum frequency respecting the
infrastructure limits. Consequently, AMD has redefined the concept of
maximum frequency of a part. This means that a fraction of cores can reach
maximum frequency. To find the best process scheduling policy for a given
scenario, OS needs to know the core ordering informed by the platform through
highest performance capability register of the CPPC interface.

Earlier implementations of amd-pstate preferred core only support a static
core ranking and targeted performance. Now it has the ability to dynamically
change the preferred core based on the workload and platform conditions and
accounting for thermals and aging.

Amd-pstate driver utilizes the functions and data structures provided by
the ITMT architecture to enable the scheduler to favor scheduling on cores
which can be get a higher frequency with lower voltage.
We call it amd-pstate preferred core.

Here sched_set_itmt_core_prio() is called to set priorities and
sched_set_itmt_support() is called to enable ITMT feature.
Amd-pstate driver uses the highest performance value to indicate
the priority of CPU. The higher value has a higher priority.

Amd-pstate driver will provide an initial core ordering at boot time.
It relies on the CPPC interface to communicate the core ranking to the
operating system and scheduler to make sure that OS is choosing the cores
with highest performance firstly for scheduling the process. When amd-pstate
driver receives a message with the highest performance change, it will
update the core ranking.

Changes from V13->V14:
- cpufreq:
- - fix build error without CONFIG_CPU_FREQ

- ACPI: CPPC:
Changes from V12->V13:
- ACPI: CPPC:
- - modify commit message.
- - modify handle function of the notify(0x85).
- cpufreq: amd-pstate:
- - implement update_limits() callback function.
- x86:
- - pick up Acked-By flag added by Petkov.

Changes from V11->V12:

Changes from V10->V11:
- cpufreq: amd-pstate:
- - according Perry's commnts, I replace the string with str_enabled_disable().

Changes from V9->V10:
- cpufreq: amd-pstate:
- - add judgement for highest_perf. When it is less than 255, the
  preferred core feature is enabled. And it will set the priority.
- - deleset "static u32 max_highest_perf" etc, because amd p-state
  perferred coe does not require specail process for hotpulg.

- - pick up Review-By flag added by Wyes.

Changes form V7->V8:
- all:
- - pick up Review-By flag added by Mario and Ray.
- cpufreq: amd-pstate:
- - use hw_prefcore embeds into cpudata structure.
- - delete preferred core init from cpu online/off.

Changes form V6->V7:
- x86:
- - Modify kconfig about X86_AMD_PSTATE.
- cpufreq: amd-pstate:
- - modify incorrect comments about scheduler_work().
- - convert highest_perf data type.
- - modify preferred core init when cpu init and online.
- ACPI: CPPC:
- - modify link of CPPC highest performance.
- cpufreq:
- - modify link of CPPC highest performance changed.

Changes form V5->V6:

- cpufreq: amd-pstate:
- - modify sysfs attribute for CPPC highest perf.
- - modify warning about comments
- - rebase linux-next
- cpufreq: 
- - Moidfy warning about function declarations.
- Documentation: amd-pstate:
- - align with ``amd-pstat``

Changes form V3->V4:
- Documentation: amd-pstate:
- - Modify inappropriate descriptions.

Changes form V2->V3:
- x86:
- - Modify kconfig and description.
- cpufreq: amd-pstate: 
- - Add Co-developed-by tag in commit message.
- cpufreq:
- - Modify commit message.
- Documentation: amd-pstate:
- - Modify inappropriate descriptions.

Changes form V1->V2:
