Subject[172/205] [CPUFREQ] revert "[CPUFREQ] remove rwsem lock from CPUFREQ_GOV_STOP call (second call site)"
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Andrej Gelenberg <andrej.gelenberg@udo.edu>

commit accd846698439ba18250e8fd5681af280446b853 upstream.

395913d0b1db37092ea3d9d69b832183b1dd84c5 ("[CPUFREQ] remove rwsem lock
from CPUFREQ_GOV_STOP call (second call site)") is not needed, because
there is no rwsem lock in cpufreq_ondemand and cpufreq_conservative
anymore. Lock should not be released until the work done.
