This check is there only for drivers that set transition_latency to
CPUFREQ_ETERNAL. And the "max_transition_latency" field is only set for
ondemand and conservative governors (i.e. This code doesn't run for
schedutil governor).

With CPUFREQ_ETERNAL, transition latency becomes around 4 seconds (yeah
its practically impossible). But even then there is nothing particular
in the governor's code that will not function if the latency is over
10ms (TRANSITION_LATENCY_LIMIT). Why disable use of the governor
completely ?

And if its about falling back to the performance governor for such
platforms, then we aren't doing the same for schedutil governor.

This patch get rids of this particular check and let platforms decide if
they want to use legacy governors or not.
