First one:

cpufreq: Add EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL for have_governor_per_policy

is required so that governors can be compiled as module. Otherwise they
may break.. I haven't tried that but I believe that is the case.

For second one:

cpufreq: governors: Move get_governor_parent_kobj() to cpufreq.c

I was actually working on Android's Interactive governor (Where I enabled
same per-policy-instance of governor support), And i required this patch
for its working. Then I thought other platform specific governors present
in mainline might also use this routine and so must be pushed to cpufreq.c.

Now, because this patch is around due to something which got
added in 3.10-rc1, its better to fix it in rcs only rather than fixing
it in 3.11.
I will trust your judgement here, push it for 3.10-rc if it looks okay to you.

Okay.. Will keep that in mind.
