Actually, even scaling_max_freq and scaling_min_freq are
covered centerally at devfreq.c:update_devfreq();

Wouldn't it be sufficient to return UINT_MAX for performance
and return UINT_MIN (0) for powersave, if the purpose is to
remove redundancy?

In the same sense, we may return UINT_MAX for freq-increasing
case for simpleondemand as well, because they are filtered
centrally anyway.

(This commit might be better merged to 4/11 in that case as well.)
