Hi,

Adding error checks to devfreq userspace governor, the current 
implementation results in setting wrong
frequency when sscanf returns error.

Subject: [PATCH] devfreq: replace sscanf with kstrtol

store_freq function of devfreq userspace governor
executes further, even if error is returned from sscanf,
this will result in setting up wrong frequency value.

The usage for the sscanf is only for single variable so
replace sscanf with kstrtol along with error check to
bail out if any error is returned.

I think that just you can check the return value as following:
The other point of devfreq already uses the following style
to check the return value of sscanf. I think kstrtol is not necessary.

     err = sscanf(buf, "%lu", &wanted);
     if (err != 1)
          goto out;

And please use the scripts/get_maintainer.pl
in order to prevent the missing of the reviewer.

[Santosh] - I Agree we need to have this error check as mentioned by you 
if we are scanning an arrary from the sscanf,
but in the above code we are only scanning one variable and there is a 
rule in the checkpatch scripts, not to use sscanf if it is a single 
variable, So I need to replace sscanf to strtol

I have added all the mails I got as output from 
scripts/get_maintainer.pl scripts in this mail.

IMHO, even if checkpatch shows the warning about sscanf,
I'd like you to use 'sscanf' in order to maintain
the consistency and readability when handling the sscanf.

For example, drivers/devfreq/devfreq.c and drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq.c
have the same warnings on many points.

Maybe, you missed including me (reviewer) to cc list.

[Santosh] - Thanks, will change the patch to add the error check for 
sscanf and bail out.

[Santosh] - Sorry, May be I am using bit older script file, will cross 
check this in future.
