I think I get these changes and now dbs_mutex is needed...
Making sure governor() is always called with rwsem held (hope that is the
case now) is a good idea. Unfortunately it requires the dbs_mutex in
do_dbs_timer and it will be hard to ever remove it.

I still do not see the need of "dbs_mutex protects data in dbs_tuners_ins
from concurrent changes", though. If someone enlightens me, that would
be appreciated.

Thanks,

Thomas
