brcm_avs_cpufreq_get() calls cpufreq_cpu_get() to get cpufreq policy,
meanwhile, it also increments the kobject reference count of policy to
mark it busy. However, a corresponding call of cpufreq_cpu_put() is
ignored to decrement the kobject reference count back, which may lead
to a potential stuck risk that percpu cpuhp thread deadly waits for
dropping of kobject refcount when percpu cpufreq policy free.

The call trace of stuck risk could be:
cpufreq_online()  //If cpufreq online failed, goto out_free_policy.
    ->cpufreq_policy_free()     //Do cpufreq_policy free.
            ->kobject_put()       //Skip if policy kfref count is not 1.
                    ->complete()  //Complete policy->kobj_unregister.
                ->wait_for_completion() //Wait for policy->kobj_unregister.

A simple way to avoid this stuck risk is use cpufreq_cpu_get_raw()
instead of cpufreq_cpu_get(), since this can be easily exercised by
attempting to force an unbind of the CPUfreq driver.
