Good catch but you pointed out to the wrong commit really.

674e75411fc2 ("sched: cpufreq: Allow remote cpufreq callbacks"

is the real culprit as that's where the 'cpu' field is added.

This wouldn't be required now as it got merged in 4.14 only and Rafael
should be able to get that as part of 4.14 itself.

Maybe just move this below memset.

Diff looks fine though.
