[PATCH] cpufreq: stats: Make the stats code non-modular

Rafael J. Wysocki-4
From: Rafael J. Wysocki <[hidden email]>

The modularity of cpufreq_stats is quite problematic.

First off, the usage of policy notifiers for the initialization
and cleanup in the cpufreq_stats module is inherently racy with
respect to CPU offline/online and the initialization and cleanup
of the cpufreq driver.

Second, fast frequency switching (used by the schedutil governor)
cannot be enabled if any transition notifiers are registered, so
if the cpufreq_stats module (that registers a transition notifier
for updating transition statistics) is loaded, the schedutil governor
cannot use fast frequency switching.

On the other hand, allowing cpufreq_stats to be built as a module
doesn't really add much value.  Arguably, there's not much reason
for that code to be modular at all.

For the above reasons, make the cpufreq stats code non-modular,
modify the core to invoke functions provided by that code directly
and drop the notifiers from it.

While at it, clean up Kconfig help for the CPU_FREQ_STAT and
CPU_FREQ_STAT_DETAILS options.

Looks far better now :)
