Right, but we will still need sugov_update_next_freq() to have the
same implementation regardless and so I am not sure if we should add
this change:

diff --git a/kernel/sched/cpufreq_schedutil.c b/kernel/sched/cpufreq_schedutil.c

+ if (!sg_policy->need_freq_update)
+ return;
next_f = sg_policy->next_freq;

/* Restore cached freq as next_freq has changed */
