cpufreq: Use sizeof(*ptr) convetion for computing sizes
Chapter 14 of Documentation/CodingStyle says: The preferred form for passing a size of a struct is the following: p = kmalloc(sizeof(*p), ...); The alternative form where struct name is spelled out hurts readability and introduces an opportunity for a bug when the pointer variable type is changed but the corresponding sizeof that is passed to a memory allocator is not. This wasn't followed consistently in drivers/cpufreq, let's make it more consistent by always following this rule. Signed-off-by: Viresh Kumar <viresh.kumar@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.
