This could be because of the new patch, i added preempt_disable() instead
of taking cpucontrol lock in __cpufreq_driver_target().

The reason is we now enter the same code path from the cpu_up() and cpu_down()
generated cpu notifier callbacks and ends up trying to lock when the
call path already has the cpucontrol lock.

Its happening because we do set_cpus_allowed() in powernowk8_target().
