Add dev_pm_qos notifiers to devfreq core in order to support frequency
limits via dev_pm_qos_add_request.

Unlike the rest of devfreq the dev_pm_qos frequency is measured in Khz,
this is consistent with current dev_pm_qos usage for cpufreq and
allows frequencies above 2Ghz (pm_qos expresses limits as s32).

Like with cpufreq the handling of min_freq/max_freq is moved to the
dev_pm_qos mechanism. Constraints from userspace are no longer clamped on
store, instead all values can be written and we only check against OPPs in a
new devfreq_get_freq_range function. This is consistent with the design of

Notifiers from pm_qos are executed under a single global dev_pm_qos_mtx and
need to take devfreq->lock. Notifier registration takes the same dev_pm_qos_mtx
so in order to prevent lockdep warnings it must be done outside devfreq->lock.
Current devfreq_add_device does all initialization under devfreq->lock and that
needs to be relaxed.


Changes since v5 are mostly cosmetic:
* Drop patches which are not strictly related to PM QoS.
* Add a comment explaining why devfreq_add_device needs two cleanup paths.
* Remove {} for single line.
* Rename {min,max}_freq_req to user_{min,max}_freq_freq
* Collect reviews

Sorry for forgetting to properly label v5. I know this is inside the
merge window but review would still be appreciated.

Changes since v4:
* Move more devfreq_add_device init ahead of device_register.
* Make devfreq_dev_release cleanup devices not yet in devfreq_list. This is
simpler than previous attempt to add to devfreq_list sonner.
* Take devfreq->lock in trans_stat_show
* Register dev_pm_opp notifier on devfreq parent dev (which has OPPs)

Changes since v3:
* Cleanup locking and error-handling in devfreq_add_device
* Register notifiers after device registration but before governor start
* Keep the initialization of min_req/max_req ahead of device_register
because it's used for sysfs handling
* Use HZ_PER_KHZ instead of 1000
* Add kernel-doc comments
* Move OPP notifier to core

Changes since v2:
* Handle sysfs via dev_pm_qos (in separate patch)
* Add locking to {min,max}_freq_show
* Fix checkpatch issues (long lines etc)
Link to v2: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11084279/

Changes since v1:
* Add doxygen comments for min_nb/max_nb
* Remove notifiers on error/cleanup paths. Keep gotos simple by relying on
dev_pm_qos_remove_notifier ignoring notifiers which were not added.
