hwmon: (powerpc/powernv) hwmon driver for power, fan rpm, voltage and temperature
This patch adds basic kernel support for reading power values, fan speed rpm, voltage and temperature data on powernv platforms which will be exported to user space through sysfs interface.

+Kernel Driver IBMPOWERNV
+========================
+
+Supported systems:
+ * Any recent IBM P servers based on POWERNV platform
+
+Author: Neelesh Gupta
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver implements reading the platform sensors data like temperature/fan/
+voltage/power for 'POWERNV' platform.
+
+The driver uses the platform device infrastructure. It probes the device tree
+for sensor devices during the __init phase and registers them with the 'hwmon'.
+'hwmon' populates the 'sysfs' tree having attribute files, each for a given
+sensor type and its attribute data.
+
+All the nodes in the DT appear under "/ibm,opal/sensors" and each valid node in
+the DT maps to an attribute file in 'sysfs'. The node exports unique 'sensor-id'
+which the driver uses to make an OPAL call to the firmware.
+
+Usage notes
+-----------
+The driver is built statically with the kernel by enabling the config
+CONFIG_SENSORS_IBMPOWERNV. It can also be built as module 'ibmpowernv'.
