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

Sorry for the really long delay this time around. I am used to replying within a
day normally, and this time it just took so much time.

For next time please rebase on latest updates in pm/linux-next as there are
few updates there.

I agree with the idea here, though the $subject can be improved a bit
here..

There is a down_read() present early in this routine and we better update this
at that place only.

We already have a if (cpus > 1) block, move this there.

Also, you must mention in the log about an important change you are making.
Don't know if there are any side effects...

You are emptying policy->cpus on removal of last CPU of a policy, which wasn't
the case earlier.
