We must call __cpufreq_governor(data, CPUFREQ_GOV_POLICY_EXIT) before
calling cpufreq_cpu_put(data), so that policy kobject have valid
fields. Otherwise, removing last online cpu of policy->cpus causes
this crash for ondemand/conservative governor.

Of course this only impacted drivers which have
have_governor_per_policy set to true. i.e. big LITTLE cpufreq driver.
