Okay, I think I have figured this out. During initialization,
the cpufreq infrastruture only initializes the first core of
each processor. When a request comes into the second core,
it's data structre is unitialized and we get the null point
dereference.

The solution is to assign the pointer to the data structure for
the first core to all the other cores.

Tom, could you try this patch and see if it helps?
