Subject: [PATCH review for 4.9 01/50] cpufreq: Do not clear real_cpus mask on
 policy init

From: "Rafael J. Wysocki" <rafael.j.wysocki@...el.com>

[ Upstream commit f451014692ae34e587b00de6745e16661cf734d8 ]

If new_policy is set in cpufreq_online(), the policy object has just
been created and its real_cpus mask has been zeroed on allocation,
and the driver's ->init() callback should not touch it.

It doesn't need to be cleared again, so don't do that.
