One nit and one question follow.

Question: grepping for CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_CAP_GOV and
cpufreq_gov_cap_gov didn't gave me hits in next-20150513. And this
series doesn't add them, does it? So where do they com from?
(Since you add CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_CFS and cpufreq_cfs in this patch it
seems you intended to add those. I briefly looked into the way
CPUFREQ_DEFAULT_GOVERNOR is set in cpufreq.h when v1 came along, found
it to complicated for me, and promptly forgot the details, so please

This states the license is GPL v2.
And, according to include/linux/module.h, this states the license is GPL
v2 or later. So I think that either the comment at the top of this file
or the ident used in the MODULE_LICENSE() macro needs to be changed.
