Gautham R. Shenoy - March 10, 2014, 11:11 a.m.
From: "Gautham R. Shenoy" <ego@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Create a driver attribute named cpuinfo_nominal_freq which
creates a sysfs read-only file named cpuinfo_nominal_freq. Export
the frequency corresponding to the nominal_pstate through this
interface.

Nominal frequency is the highest non-turbo frequency for the
platform.  This is generally used for setting governor policies from
user space for optimal energy efficiency.
