Can't say what happened to it...
Sorry for being late. I am down with Fever and throat infection since few days.
Still struggling with it..
There are few things i tried. Firstly the tag: next-20130326 is bad as there are
some bad commits in cpufreq core in it.
I then tried latest linux-next/master on my Thinkpad (model name : Intel(R)
Core(TM) i7-2640M CPU @ 2.80GHz) and couldn't boot it up. My ubuntu
Then i tried Rafael's linux-next branch
079576f Merge branch 'pm-cpufreq-next' into linux-next
And couldn't find any issues with it. I am easily able to remove/add cpus at
Can you give this branch a try?
OK, you seem to be well again, nice to hear.
I was doing the whole week spring-cleaning in the apartment of my parents.
Now, I have some minutes for a compilation run.
I guess "cpufreq: Call __cpufreq_governor() with correct policy->cpus
mask" could be the correct fix, but will try the GIT branch you have

Both BROKEN here, specific pm-next commitid and pulling
pm.git#linux-next into next-20130411 (see attached files).
Is "cpufreq: convert cpufreq_driver to using RCU" the root cause of this all?
[ CC Nathan ]
NO, wrong assumption.

[ TO Dirk (Author of Intel pstate driver) ]
With CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE=n (unset) I do not see the call-trace!
My kernel-config and dmesg are attached.
You're seeing a trouble with a new driver, then, so that's not a regression.
This IS a regression.
If the intel_pstate driver is being used __cpufreq_governor() should NOT be
called intel_pstate does not implement the target() callback.
Nathan's commit 5800043b2 changed the fence around the call to
__cpufreq_governor() in __cpufreq_remove_dev() here is the relevant hunk.
