I don't understand. If device is not registered by devfreq_add_device(),
you don't change the governor by using governor_store().

If you can change the governor through governor_store(),
it means that the devfreq instance was added without any problem.
The added devfreq instance must have the sepecific governor
on df->governor variable.

So, I think that df->governor is always set and then prev_governor is always set.
