[CPUFREQ] Fix some more CPU hotplug locking.

Lukewarm IQ detected in hotplug locking
BUG: warning at kernel/cpu.c:38/lock_cpu_hotplug()

As there are other places that call cpufreq_update_policy without
the hotplug lock, it seems better to keep the hotplug locking
at the lower level for the time being until this is revamped.
