Description of problem:

Frequency scaling and thermal zones do not work for iMX6 SOC

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

current fedora stock kernel

How reproducible:

Always with fedora stock kernel

Steps to Reproduce:

Boot fedora on iMX6 SOC device

Actual results:
ls /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/
 ==> empty directory

start tmon
 ==> No thermal zones found, exit

Expected results:
populated directories:
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0
 affected_cpus
 cpuinfo_cur_freq
 cpuinfo_max_freq
 cpuinfo_min_freq
 cpuinfo_transition_latency
 related_cpus
 scaling_available_frequencies
 scaling_available_governors
 scaling_cur_freq
 scaling_driver
 scaling_governor
 scaling_max_freq
 scaling_min_freq
 scaling_setspeed
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/stats
 reset
 time_in_state
 total_trans
 trans_table

proper tmon status:
TMON v1.0

Additional info:

Building the fedora kernel source package with CONFIG_ARM_IMX6Q_CPUFREQ=y, CONFIG_IMX_THERMAL=y, CONFIG_NVMEM=y, CONFIG_NVMEM_IMX_OCOTP=y, i.e flipping the modules to build-in make it work for me. cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/stats/time_in_state reports proper frequency state usage and the by fuses provided trip points get used.

Which shouldn't be the case, it should work when built modular. We can't build everything in for a distro kernel or else we'd not have enough memory to run. This really needs to be fixed upstream
