This is a WIP patch that makes use of the DEVFREQ_POLICY_NOTIFIER:

https://chromium-review.googlesource.com/c/chromiumos/third_party/kernel/+/1065122

Sure, I intend to land the above driver upstream if devfreq can
provide the necessary interfaces.

Right, the next revision will pass a struct devfreq_policy instead,
where the notifiers can adjust the min/max values, similar to what
cpufreq does.
