It affect the behaviors of whole device drivers using devfreq subsystem.
It is not good to change the workqueue type without any reasonable
data like experiment result, power-consumption result and performance
result for almost device drivers using devfreq subsystem.

Are there any problem or any benefit to change workqueue type?

Actually, it is not simple to change the like just one device driver
because devfreq subsytem is very important for both performance
and power-consumption.

If you hope to change the feature related to both performance
and power-consumption, please suggest the reasonable data
with fundamental reason.

So, I can't agree it.
