Could you try one more experiment? With your working system, please cherry
pick these commits and try it again?

68564a4... work_on_cpu: don't try to get_online_cpus() in work_on_cpu.
e1d9ec6... work_on_cpu: Use our own workqueue.
6eb714c... cpufreq: use work_on_cpu in acpi-cpufreq.c for drv_read and drv_write

If that works, then try and un-revert e39ad415ac and see if it's fixed as well?

(The underlying work_on_cpu() function was causing these problems, but the 1st two
of the above should fix it.)
