I copied following from your patch sent on 5th july.. It didn't had any version
number and so is difficult to distinguish..

So, you just added this directory once.. So you must not
remove it.


Where did I say you remove this directory..
To be clear, don't remove cpufreq debugfs directory at all. Play
only with cpu directories inside this debugfs directory.
