Nishanth Menon - Oct. 26, 2012, 12:48 a.m.
devfreq governors such as ondemand are controlled by a min and
max frequency, while governors like userspace governor allow us
to set a specific frequency.
However, for the same specific device, depending on the SoC, the
available frequencies can vary.

So expose the available frequencies as a snapshot over sysfs to
allow informed decisions.

This was inspired by cpufreq framework's equivalent for similar
usage sysfs node: scaling_available_frequencies.

Applies on top of Rafael's linux-next branch:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm.git
linux-next                b960e9a Merge branch 'pm-sleep-next' into linux-next

Example output from Beagleboard XM (3730) using a dummy test driver
http://pastebin.pandaboard.org/index.php/view/85100576 :

/sys/devices/platform/iva.0/devfreq/iva.0 # cat available_frequencies 
260000000 520000000 660000000
/sys/devices/platform/iva.0/devfreq/iva.0 # cat available_frequencies|tr ' ' '-'
260000000-520000000-660000000

V2 :
	- review comment update from v1
	- protected the sysfs from buffer overflow - just in case..
