+Description: Discover and change clock speed of CPUs
+
+ Clock scaling allows you to change the clock speed of the
+ CPUs on the fly. This is a nice method to save battery
+ power, because the lower the clock speed, the less power
+ the CPU consumes.
+
+ There are many knobs to tweak in this directory.
+
+ See files in Documentation/cpu-freq/ for more information.
+
+ In particular, read Documentation/cpu-freq/user-guide.txt
+ to learn how to control the knobs.
