Thanks for making this library better.

When I did the dpdk-metrics investigation at the US DPDK summit, the power
library was one of the DPDK libraries that no upstream open source project

You might want to consider:
  * why is no project using it? what is wrong?
  * does it not fit any use case in any project should it continue?
  * if it is for a non-open source customer, then why is it part of DPDK?
