DEVFREQ supports the default governors like performance, simple_ondemand and
also allows the devfreq driver to add their own governor like tegra30-devfreq.c
according to their requirement. In result, some sysfs attributes are useful
or not useful. Prior to that the user can access all sysfs attributes
regardless of the available attributes.

So, clarify the access permission of sysfs attributes according to governor.
When adding the devfreq governor, can specify the available attribute
information by using DEVFREQ_GOV_ATTR_* constant variable. The user can
read or write the sysfs attributes in accordance to the specified attributes.

When adding the governor, can add the following attributes
according to the governor feature.

[Definition for speific sysfs attributes]
- DEVFREQ_GOV_ATTR_POLLING_INTERVAL to update polling interval for timer.
  : /sys/class/devfreq/[devfreq dev name]/polling_interval
- DEVFREQ_GOV_ATTR_TIMER to change the type of timer on either deferrable
  or dealyed timer.
  : /sys/class/devfreq/[devfreq dev name]/timer

And all devfreq governors have to support the following common attributes.
The common attributes are added to devfreq class by default.
- governor
- available_governors
- available_frequencies
- cur_freq
- target_freq
- min_freq
- max_freq
- trans_stat

The "df->governor = new_governor" needs to be set before invocation of
the event_handler(GOV_START) because governors like a
performance-governor need to have the df->governor being set before the
GOV_START callback, otherwise performance governor will use
devfreq->prev_governor->get_target_freq() in devfreq_update_target(),
thus setting a wrong (non-max) freq.

Same here.

What about to use plural for the "attrs" as well?

You're right. It is my mistake. Thanks for your detailed review.
