ah... typo mistake, i wanted to write update_load_avg
update_blocked_averages()
update_cfs_rq_load_avg()
cfs_rq_util_change -- > trig frequency update
attach_entity_load_avg()
cfs_rq_util_change -- > trig frequency update

yes, a0e813f26ebc was item 1 and this patch is item 2 on top

Because it is handled by the update_load_avg() in
for_each_leaf_cfs_rq_safe() loop

This means that we can have 2 calls to cpufreq_update_util in
update_blocked_average() but at least the values will be up to date in
both calls unlike previously.

I'm going to prepare an additional patch to remove this useless call.
I have also seen some possible further optimization that i need to
study a bit more before preparing a patch
