[PATCH v2] cpufreq: Restore policy min/max limits on CPU online

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>
Subject: [PATCH] cpufreq: Restore policy min/max limits on CPU online

On CPU online the cpufreq core restores the previous governor (or
the previous "policy" setting for ->setpolicy drivers), but it does
not restore the min/max limits at the same time, which is confusing,
inconsistent and real pain for users who set the limits and then
suspend/resume the system (using full suspend), in which case the
limits are reset for all CPUs except for the boot one (on systems
with one CPU per policy, which means the vast majority of laptops,
for example).

Fix this by making cpufreq_online() restore the limits when it
sees that this is CPU online and not initialization from scratch.

Also move the governor restoration code to the place where the limits
are restored for consistency.

Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>

Here it goes for completeness:

-> v2: Avoid code duplication by adding a helper function for copying values.
