SubjectRe: [PATCH v4] PM / devfreq: Fix devfreq_add_device() when drivers are built as modules.

Usually, devfreq used 'governor_name' indicating the name of governor.
you better to use 'governor_name' instead of 'name' for more readability.

Usually, devfreq.c didn;t use the 'Return: ...'. So, you better to explain
what is returned from this function with function description.

ditto. (name -> governor_name)

You have to check whether governor name is NULL or not.

if (IS_ERR_OR_NULL(name)) {
pr_err("DEVFREQ: %s: Invalid parameters\n", __func__);
return ERR_PTR(-EINVAL);
}

When error happen, you unlock the mutex. If failed to request module,
you should restore the previous state. Please mutex_lock(&devfreq_list_lock)
before return.

Don't need to add the blank line. It is enough to change the function
from find_devfreq_governor to try_then_request_governor.
