Governor's owner refcount usage was broken. We should increment refcount only
when CPUFREQ_GOV_POLICY_INIT event has come and should decrement only if
CPUFREQ_GOV_POLICY_EXIT has come.

Currently there can be situations where governor is in use but we have allowed
it to be unloaded which may result in undefined behavior.
Lets fix it.
