Hello Aaro, thanks for your response. But in case you've missed
the original thread, please check it at:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/11/13/857

My problem is NOT about how to fix the problem on Loongson (or
x86): the patch in the original thread (only has one-line-of-code,
simply changes timing of cpufreq_core_init), or your patch, is
indeed working. But they are workarounds, the real issue is the race
condition in cpufreq.

My question is

1. What's the progress and current consensus about how the underlying
problem can be fixed.

2. If there's no consensus since November, is it possible that we land
a hotfix patch to linux-stable as a temporary workaround?

Cheers,
Tom Li.
