Subject[PATCH 5.10 060/103] cpufreq: powernow-k8: pass policy rather than use cpufreq_cpu_get()
Date
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

commit 943bdd0cecad06da8392a33093230e30e501eccc upstream.

Currently there is an unlikely case where cpufreq_cpu_get() returns a
NULL policy and this will cause a NULL pointer dereference later on.

Fix this by passing the policy to transition_frequency_fidvid() from
the caller and hence eliminating the need for the cpufreq_cpu_get()
and cpufreq_cpu_put().

Thanks to Viresh Kumar for suggesting the fix.

Addresses-Coverity: ("Dereference null return")
Fixes: b43a7ffbf33b ("cpufreq: Notify all policy->cpus in cpufreq_notify_transition()")
