Subject[BUG -tip] unable to handle kernel paging request
Hi,

(not sure if I'm CC'ing all the relevant persons...)

I am hitting this bug, which occurs mainly when I am shutting down my laptop. I
took a look at the cpufreq code and found out something which I am not sure if it
is related with this bug (or even if it is an issue at all):

void cpufreq_notify_transition(struct cpufreq_freqs *freqs, unsigned int state)
{
struct cpufreq_policy *policy;
BUG_ON(irqs_disabled());

freqs->flags = cpufreq_driver->flags;

...

This code accesses cpufreq_driver without using the cpufreq_driver_lock. I
believe this is the only place in the code where this lock is not obtaining
before accessing the global cpufreq_driver.

Any ideas?
