Subject[PATCH 1/2] cpufreq: conservative: fix requested_freq reduction issue
Date
When decreasing frequency, requested_freq may be less than
freq_target, So requested_freq minus freq_target may be negative,
But reqested_freq's unit is unsigned int, then the negative result
will be one larger integer which may be even higher than
requested_freq.

This patch is to fix such issue. when result becomes negative,
set requested_freq as the min value of policy.
