Recently I added an RCU annotation check to rcu_assign_pointer(). All
pointers assigned to RCU protected data are to be annotated with __rcu
inorder to be able to use rcu_assign_pointer() similar to checks in
other RCU APIs.

This resulted in a sparse error: kernel//sched/cpufreq.c:41:9: sparse:
error: incompatible types in comparison expression (different address

Fix this by annotating cpufreq_update_util_data pointer with __rcu. This
will also help sparse catch any future RCU misuage bugs.

[From an RCU perspective]
