CPU looks to be a bit different in that aspect as compared to I2C. We
aren't really sure if I2C will work at the existing freq but we are 100%
sure that current freq of CPU is valid enough, otherwise we wouldn't
have reached to this point.. :)

I am sure you want to have a look at this:

commit da60ce9f2faca87013fd3cab1c3bed5183608c3d
Author: Viresh Kumar <>
Date: Thu Oct 3 20:28:30 2013 +0530

cpufreq: call cpufreq_driver->get() after calling ->init()

Almost all drivers set policy->cur with current CPU frequency in
their ->init()
part. This can be done for all of them at core level and so they
wouldn't need
to do it.

This patch adds supporting code in cpufreq core for calling get()
after we have
called init() for a policy.
