Thanks for your review.
As current CPPC only supports CPUFREQ_SHARED_TYPE_ANY. And I think this
is the case for most systems. 
According to your suggestion to initialize all performance capabilitis
in one init() call, I want to change to only copy the online cpu's
performance capabilities to other shared cpus. And I tested on QDF2400
platform, it works well.

Could you please have comments on this?

Thanks.
