Hence potentially compiler may generate two separate fetches of the cur_freq value, then the clock rate could be changed by other CPU core simultaneously with tegra_devfreq_get_dev_status() or kernel may re-schedule preemptively, changing the clock rate in-between of the two fetches.

Thanks. I understand why have to consider the inconsistency of clock
which is used on the multiple points.

Looks good to me.
