Probably not needed anymore. See below.

I agree. This can go away. Initialization is not really needed here. We initialize
the scale values to SCHED_CAPACITY_SCALE at boot-time.

So what about I call arch_set_freq_scale() in __cpufreq_notify_transition() in the
CPUFREQ_POSTCHANGE case for slow-switching and in cpufreq_driver_fast_switch() for
fast-switching?

Like this: (only slow-path slightly tested):
