Re: [PATCH] Add completion for cpupower command

Thanks for contributing this. I've taken a look and have a few comments.
Mostly all minor points.

ret should be initialised to 1 and shouldn't be of array type.

In this function, I'd recommand having _arguments update $curcontext
instead of using the context array. So pass -C to _arguments and use:
  local curcontext="$curcontext"

The array form with $context is only necessary if more than one state
is simultaneously possible. That happens when you have optional
arguments which cpupower doesn't.

As is often the case with version and help options, no other options are
valid following them. So these two exclusion lists can be reduced to
(- :)
  '(- :)'{-h,--help}'[print usage information]'

Also, doesn't cpupower also have a -c/--cpu option for selecting
specific CPUs and -d/--debug?

It'd also be useful to complete these commands after the help command
but this doesn't do that.

With commands that take subcommands, it is common practice to insert the
subcommand in to the command component of $curcontext at this point.
Something like:

The exclusion lists could be a lot more restrictive. Most combinations
  You can't specify more than one --cpu parameter and/or
  more than one output-specific argument
I think it is perhaps only the last three options that can be used with others.

There's a colon missing on that line.

Not especially important but it's not possible to complete those
states is it? Documentation points to
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpuidle/state*. Those don't exist on
my system but that might be because it's very old.

You can pass -s to this _arguments as it seems cpupower lets you clump
together options, e.g. cpupower frequency-info -fn

It'd be nice to have descriptions for this and the governors. e.g.:
  _wanted frequencies expl frequency compadd ....
And if you stick to the context array and no -C option to _arguments,
this would need to be:
   _wanted -C "$context" frequencies ...
