commit 3be3f8f36e7349006f19c8c8f0d686e98462a993 upstream.

The dynamic power consumption of a device is proportional to the
square of voltage (V) and the clock frequency (f). It can be expressed as

Pdyn = dynamic-power-coefficient * V^2 * f.

The coefficient represents the running time dynamic power consumption in
units of mw/MHz/uVolt^2 and can be used in the above formula to
calculate the dynamic power in mW.
