[PATCH 01/13] cpufreq: Allow restricting to internal governors only

For hwp, the standard governors are not usable, and only the internal
one is applicable.  Add the cpufreq_governor_internal boolean to
indicate when an internal governor, like hwp-internal, will be used.
This is set during presmp_initcall, so that it can suppress governor
registration during initcall.  Only a governor with a name containing
"internal" will be allowed in that case.

This way, the unuseable governors are not registered, so they internal
one is the only one returned to userspace.  This means incompatible
governors won't be advertised to userspace.
