cpufreq: send new set of notification for transition failures
In the current code, if we fail during a frequency transition, we simply send the POSTCHANGE notification with the old frequency. This isn't enough. One of the core users of these notifications is the code responsible for keeping loops_per_jiffy aligned with frequency changes. And mostly it is written as: if ((val == CPUFREQ_PRECHANGE && freq->old < freq->new) || (val == CPUFREQ_POSTCHANGE && freq->old > freq->new)) { update-loops-per-jiffy... } So, suppose we are changing to a higher frequency and failed during transition, then following will happen: - CPUFREQ_PRECHANGE notification with freq-new > freq-old - CPUFREQ_POSTCHANGE notification with freq-new == freq-old The first one will update loops_per_jiffy and second one will do nothing. Even if we send the 2nd notification by exchanging values of freq-new and old, some users of these notifications might get unstable. This can be fixed by simply calling cpufreq_notify_post_transition() with error code and this routine will take care of sending notifications in the correct order.
