Subject[PATCH 3.19 047/101] cpufreq: Schedule work for the first-online CPU on resume
3.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Viresh Kumar <>

commit c75de0ac0756d4b442f460e10461720c7c2412c2 upstream.

All CPUs leaving the first-online CPU are hotplugged out on suspend and
and cpufreq core stops managing them.

On resume, we need to call cpufreq_update_policy() for this CPU's policy
to make sure its frequency is in sync with cpufreq's cached value, as it
might have got updated by hardware during suspend/resume.

The policies are always added to the top of the policy-list. So, in
normal circumstances, CPU 0's policy will be the last one in the list.
And so the code checks for the last policy.

But there are cases where it will fail. Consider quad-core system, with
policy-per core. If CPU0 is hotplugged out and added back again, the
last policy will be on CPU1 :(

To fix this in a proper way, always look for the policy of the first
online CPU. That way we will be sure that we are calling
cpufreq_update_policy() for the only CPU that wasn't hotplugged out.
