[PATCH 4.9 117/177] powerpc/powernv/cpufreq: Fix the frequency read by /proc/cpuinfo

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Dec 18 2017 - 11:04:58 EST

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Shriya <shriyak@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit cd77b5ce208c153260ed7882d8910f2395bfaabd ]

The call to /proc/cpuinfo in turn calls cpufreq_quick_get() which
returns the last frequency requested by the kernel, but may not
reflect the actual frequency the processor is running at. This patch
makes a call to cpufreq_get() instead which returns the current
frequency reported by the hardware.
