If you are not touching it, then it should not change in the passive mode.

Note that the active mode performance scaling algorithm (which is not
the same as the performance cpufreq governor) sets the EPP to 0 for
all of the CPUs that it is used with and the driver sets the EPP to
255 in ->stop_cpu.

That last bit is questionable, but that's the active mode behavior
which is not changed by the $subject patch.

It would be more reasonable to restore the previous EPP when stopping
CPUs.  Let me cut a v7 with that changed.

The 0xFF EPP value is what the active mode left behind and the passive
mode doesn't touch the EPP at all.

It is still 0xFF as previously (because the passive mode doesn't
change the EPP).
