On many newer SoCs LMh is configured by firmware/TZ and no programming is needed from the kernel side. But on certain SoCs like sdm845 the firmware does not do a complete programming of the h/w block. On such SoCs kernel software has to explicitly set up the temperature limits and turn on various monitoring and enforcing algorithms on the hardware. Introduce support for enabling and programming various limit settings and monitoring capabilities of Limits Management Hardware(LMh) associated with cpu clusters. Also introduce support in cpufreq hardware driver to monitor the interrupt associated with cpu frequency throttling so that this information can be conveyed to the schdeuler via thermal pressure interface. With this patch series following cpu performance improvement(30-70%) is observed on sdm845. The reasoning here is that without LMh being programmed properly from the kernel, the default settings were enabling thermal mitigation for CPUs at too low a temperature (around 70-75 degree C). This in turn meant that many a time CPUs were never actually allowed to hit the maximum possible/required frequencies.
