Subject: [PATCH] PM / devfreq: stopping the governor before device_unregister()

From: Vincent Donnefort <vincent.donnefort@....com>

device_release() is freeing the resources before calling the device
specific release callback which is, in the case of devfreq, stopping
the governor.

It is a problem as some governors are using the device resources. e.g.
simpleondemand which is using the devfreq deferrable monitoring work. If it
is not stopped before the resources are freed, it might lead to a use after
free.
