2.6.39-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Guenter Roeck <guenter.roeck@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 4f5f71a7abe329bdad81ee6a8e4545054a7cc30a upstream.

Commit a321cedb12904114e2ba5041a3673ca24deb09c9 excludes CPU models 0xe, 0xf,
0x16, and 0x1a from TjMax temperature adjustment, even though several of those
CPUs are known to have TiMax other than 100 degrees C, and even though the code
in adjust_tjmax() explicitly handles those CPUs and points to a Web document
listing several of the affected CPU IDs.

Reinstate original TjMax adjustment if TjMax can not be determined using the
