Subject[007/165] [CPUFREQ] Fix memory leak in cpufreq_stat
2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: steven finney <Steven.Finney@palm.com>

commit 98586ed8b8878e10691203687e89a42fa3355300 upstream.

When a CPU is taken offline in an SMP system, cpufreq_remove_dev()
nulls out the per-cpu policy before cpufreq_stats_free_table() can
make use of it. cpufreq_stats_free_table() then skips the
call to sysfs_remove_group(), leaving about 100 bytes of sysfs-related
memory unclaimed each time a CPU-removal occurs. Break up
cpu_stats_free_table into sysfs and table portions, and
call the sysfs portion early.
