Subject[PATCH 1/2] cpufreq: Return error if ->get() failed in cpufreq_update_policy()
cpufreq_update_policy() calls cpufreq_driver->get() to get current frequency of
a CPU and it is not supposed to fail or return zero. Return error in case that

I don't think this will fix the issue you were facing but might supress it :)..
And so you need to understand what causes your ->get() to return zero.

@Rafael: I got to these patches while looking at code recently after Pierre
complained about. Came to this conclusion after having discussions with Srivatsa
over IRC..
