It is difficult to understand why use UINT_MAX instead of df->max_freq.

Instead, after merged the commit ab8f58ad72c4 ("PM / devfreq: Set min/max_freq
when adding the devfreq device"), df->max/min_freq have the specific frequency
value always. So, we can change it as following without UINT_MAX. 

	*freq = df->max_freq;

Each function have to keep their own function role.
Please keep '*freq = df->min_freq'.

Use df->max_freq instead of UINT_MAX as following.

	unsigned long max = df->max_freq;
