[PATCH v4 7/7] cpufreq: Add boost alias to cpb

From: Matthew Garrett
Date: Mon Jul 18 2011 - 12:39:35 EST

cpb is AMD's name for the dynamic overclocking present in their chips.
Intel provide similar functionality, so add "boost" as an alias. In the
long run we can then transition to using that rather than cpb.
