Subject: Re: [PATCH] cpufreq: loongson2_cpufreq: don't declare local variable as static

FWIW, the same mistake is present in at32.

I've just finished bisecting the cpufreq regression on loongson2.
Indeed, this s/static// patch does not fix it, but it was 652ed95d5fa,
the patch that moved cpuclk into loongson2_cpufreq_cpu_init, that caused
the regression.

Reverting all the changes to loongson2_cpufreq.c in 652ed95d5fa makes
cpufreq work again, as opposed to printing nan% in all cpufreq stats in
cpufreq-info's output, and freezing shortly thereafter.
