4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: David Arcari <darcari@redhat.com>

commit 6c77003677d5f1ce15f26d24360cb66c0bc07bb3 upstream.

For a driver that does not set the CPUFREQ_STICKY flag, if all of the
->init() calls fail, cpufreq_register_driver() should return an error.
This will prevent the driver from loading.

Fixes: ce1bcfe94db8 (cpufreq: check cpufreq_policy_list instead of scanning policies for all CPUs)
