I'll call proper debugfs_remove*() function according to type of debugfs pointer.
- if cpu is last user of policy, call debugfs_remove_recursive()
- else, call debugfs_remove().

I tested quad-core EXYNOS4412 SoC based on Cortex-A9 with Tizen platform.
It is opereated on this environment but as you commnet, this test and environment
isn't enough to verify this patchset.
- Testcase1 : Change cpufreq governor on runtime
- Testcase2 : Turn on/off CPU state on runtme

I'm so sorry about this and thanks for previous your review sincerely.

As you comment, I'll modify/test this patchset on various system with enough testcase
and resend this patchset after a thorough review.

The debugfs entry of 'old_cpu' include child debugfs file(e.g., load_table)
If cpu is last user of policy and core call __cpufre_remove_dev() to remove last cpu,
core call cpufreq_move_debugfs_dir(). I have to move the data of debugfs directory/file and
child data for 'old_cpu' to debugfs directory for 'new_cpu'.

If I remove earlier dentry of 'old_cpu', I can't get the child debugfs dir/file.
So I didn't remove the earlier dentry of 'old_cpu'.

I understood on your previous comment as You said that I had to remove 'cpufreq' debugfs directory
when cpufreq isn't used.

If the core execute cpufreq_create_debugfs() in cpufreq_core_init(),
don't I need to remove 'cpufreq' debugfs directory without cpufreq_core_exit()?
