Hi all:

AMD P-State unit test(amd-pstate-ut) is a kernel module for testing
the functions of amd-pstate driver.
It could import as a module to launch some test tasks.
1) It can help all users to verify their processor support (SBIOS/
Firmware or Hardware).
2) Kernel can have a basic function test to avoid the kernel regression
during the update.
3) We can introduce more functional or performance tests to align the
together, it will benefit power and performance scale optimization.

We upstream out AMD P-state driver into Linux kernel and use this unit
test module to verify the required conditions and basic functions of
amd-pstate before integration test.

We use test module in the kselftest frameworks to implement it.
We create amd-pstate-ut module and tie it into kselftest.

For example: The test case aput_acpi_cpc is used to check whether the
_CPC object is exist in SBIOS.
The amd-pstate initialization will fail if the _CPC in ACPI SBIOS is not
existed at the detected processor, so it is a necessary condition.

At present, it only implements the basic framework and some simple test

TODO : 1) we will add more test cases to improve the depth and coverage of
the test. E.X. use the script to trigger the tbench, gitsource, kernbench,
netperf, speedometer, and etc. testing and monitor the cpu frequency and
performance goals change, power consumption at runtime. 

Please check the documentation amd-pstate.rst for details of the test steps.
