tip/sched/urgent's b90f7c9d2198 ("sched/pelt: Fix update of blocked PELT
ordering") adds this comment to both update_blocked_averages()
implementations. It mentions explicitly that update_cfs_rq_load_avg()
can call cpufreq_update_util(). Something this patch changes. Might be
good to update the comments with this patch as well.
