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.
