The list cpufreq@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the wrong list for posting cpufreq queries
as we have moved to Linux PM list <linux-pm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> list now.

Try unsetting CPUFREQ_CONST_LOOPS flag in your driver, if you have it
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe cpufreq" in
the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
