Subject[PATCH V2] cpufreq: longhaul: Revert transition_delay_us to 200 ms
Date
The commit e948bc8fbee0 ("cpufreq: Cap the default transition delay
value to 10 ms") caused a regression on EPIA-M min-ITX computer where
shutdown or reboot hangs occasionally with a print message like:

longhaul: Warning: Timeout while waiting for idle PCI bus
cpufreq: __target_index: Failed to change cpu frequency: -16

This probably happens because the cpufreq governor tries to change the
frequency of the CPU faster than allowed by the hardware.

Before the above commit, the default transition delay was set to 200 ms
for a transition_latency of 200000 ns. Lets revert back to that
transition delay value to fix it. Note that several other transition
delay values were tested like 20 ms and 30 ms and none of them have
resolved system hang issue completely.
