SubjectRe: [PATCH Resend] cpufreq: Set cpufreq_cpu_data to NULL before putting kobject
From
Viresh,
Got that box and did some debug, found the policy->kobj is not initialized.
So the race happened between cpufreq_cpu_get() and
__cpufreq_add_dev(), and verified 'this' race could be fixed by commit

6d4e81e cpufreq: Ref the policy object sooner

I have reboot the box with crond for more than 12 hours, no warning found.

But obviously, the commit
cpufreq: Set cpufreq_cpu_data to NULL before putting kobject
also fixed one of the possible race condition.


Thanks,
Ethan
