Subject: Re: [PATCH] cpufreq lock rewrite bugfix - Fix locking in cpufreq_get


Incremental bugfix to previous 3 patch patchset of cpufreq lock rewrite.

There was one code path in cpufreq_get, that was using the write lock
in place of read and also potential recursive lock with sysfs
interface of cpuinfo_cur_freq.
