Subject: [PATCH 3.13 064/259] hwmon: (adm1029) Ensure the fan_div cache is updated in set_fan_div

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Axel Lin <axel.lin@...ics.com>

commit 1035a9e3e9c76b64a860a774f5b867d28d34acc2 upstream.

Writing to fanX_div does not clear the cache. As a result, reading
from fanX_div may return the old value for up to two seconds
after writing a new value.

This patch ensures the fan_div cache is updated in set_fan_div().
