CPUFreq in Xen on ARM - Oleksandr Tyshchenko, EPAM Systems

The motivation of hypervisor based CPUFreq is to enable the one of the main PM use-cases (Dynamic voltage and frequency scaling) in virtualized system powered by Xen hypervisor. Rationale behind this activity is that CPU virtualization is done by hypervisor and the guest OS doesn't actually know anything about physical CPUs because it is running on virtual CPUs.

In this talk Oleksandr will briefly describe the possible approach of generic CPUFreq in Xen on ARM, the advantages and disadvantages of having DVFS support on ARM boards powered by Xen hypervisor and share results of his CPUFreq PoC which implies power consumption measurements with and without CPUFreq enabled on R-Car Gen3 based board as an example.
