Hi!

So how exactly do you do this? I checked other users of the api and I do 
not see any free. I would say if needed, it should be a separate patch 
and outside of this series.

Ok.

Yes indeed! But also it is a very rare chicken and egg problem.
The scenario here is that the cpus are busy and running load causing a 
thermal overrun and lmh is engaged. At the same time for this issue to 
be hit the cpu is trying to exit/disable cpufreq. Calling 
cancel_delayed_work_sync first could solve this issue, right ? 
cancel_delayed_work_sync guarantees the work not to be pending even if
it requeues itself on return. So once the delayed work is cancelled, the 
interrupts can be safely disabled. Thoughts ?
