What exactly is the argument you are pretty sure this is correct?

I expect Arjan is right.
You now only trace MSR based and not IO based frequency switching.

I don't know the tracing stuff, but it seems the cpu that executes
trace_power_frequency shows up in the statistics as the one on which the
frequency change happened which currently is wrong and you try to fix this?

What exactly is the reason you do not add
trace_power_frequency(..);
also in the
SYSTEM_IO_CAPABLE:
branch in do_drv_write()?
