Subject: [PATCH] ondemand governor use new cpufreq rwsem locking in work callback



Eliminate flush_workqueue in cpufreq_governor(STOP) callpath. Using flush
there has a deadlock potential as in 

http://uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0611.3/1223.html

Also, cleanup the locking issues with do_dbs_timer delayed_work callback.
As it changes the CPU frequency using __cpufreq_target, it needs to have
policy_rwsem in write mode, which also protects it from hot plug.
