I think we need to nail down the purpose of the lock first and discuss
the races we are trying to fix. For example, policy is used by all
cpufreq drivers, etc and no one is stopping them to use it without
taking the lock..

FWIW, I have also tried to do some cleanups earlier, but was never
able to send them upstream due to busy schedule.

You might find some interesting bits there.
