So it is not clear to me what exactly intel_pstate needs and why. Like I
wrote in my reply to Vincent just now, it can still store the last
value, even if it doesn't act on it right away.

And it can then act on that stored value at a later event, whatever is
appropriate.

I'm just saying that generating superfluous events is silly. But
possibly I read the patch wrong.
