Well, it looks like sample->freq is 0 in intel_pstate_get().

From code inspection it looks like that is caused by the
intel_pstate_get_scaled_busy() called from intel_pstate_adjust_busy_pstate(),
so it appears that cpu->pstate.current_state is 0 at that point.

I'm wondering if something like the (untested) patch below helps, then?
