Subject: [PATCH v4 1/5] cpufreq: Don't wait for CPU to going offline to restart governor

There's no need to wait for the CPU going down to fully go offline to
restart the governor. We can stop the governor, change policy->cpus and
immediately restart the governor. This should reduce the time without any
CPUfreq monitoring and also help future patches with simplifying the code.
