You're right. This part has potential errors. I'll fix it as following:
If edev is already enabled, devfreq_event_enable_edev() will just return
without any operation because devfreq-event(edev) can handle only one event
at the same time.
 
	mutex_lock(&edev->lock);
	if (edev->enable_count)
		dev_warn(&edev->dev, "%s is already enabled\n", edev->desc->name);
		ret = -EINVAL;
		goto err;
	}

	if (edev->desc->ops && edev->desc->ops->enable) {		
		ret = edev->desc->ops->enable(edev);
		if (ret < 0)
			goto err;
	}
	edev->enable_count++;

As I explained, I'll fix it as following:

	mutex_lock(&edev->lock);
	if (!edev->enable_count) {
		dev_warn(&edev->dev, "%s is already disabled\n", edev->desc->name);
		ret = -EINVAL;
		goto err;
	}

	if (edev->desc->ops && edev->desc->ops->disable) {
		ret = edev->desc->ops->disable(edev);
		if (ret < 0)
			goto err;		
	}
	edev->enable_count--;

OK, I'll fix it as following:

		edata->total_event = edata->event = 0;

But, devfreq_event_reset_event() function cannot handle edata instance
because edata is not included in edev. The edata instance is only used in devfreq_event_get_event().

OK, I'll modify it by using static inline function.

Free edev instance in devfreq_event_release_edev() as following:

	+
	+static void devfreq_event_release_edev(struct device *dev)
	+{
	+	struct devfreq_event_dev *edev = to_devfreq_event(dev);
