Even removal of __cpufreq_driver_getavg() should be done in a separate
patch, so that it can be reverted easily if required later.

Why are you changing it to cpuinfo.max_freq?? This is fixed once a driver is
initialized.. but user may request a lower max freq for a governor or policy.
Which is actually reflected in policy->max I believe.

Over that why keeping following check is useful anymore?

if (load_freq > od_tuners->up_threshold)
goto max.

As, if load is over 95, then even policy->max * 95 / 100 will even give almost
the same freq.
