Subject[PATCH] cpufreq: schedutil: Don't skip freq update when limits change
To avoid reducing the frequency of a CPU prematurely, we skip reducing
the frequency if the CPU had been busy recently.

This should not be done when the limits of the policy are changed, for
example due to thermal throttling. We should always get the frequency
within limits as soon as possible.

Fixes: ecd288429126 ("cpufreq: schedutil: Don't set next_freq to UINT_MAX")
Cc: v4.18+ <> # v4.18+

@Doug: Please try this patch, it must fix the issue you reported.
