[ 043/108] cpufreq / ACPI: Fix not loading acpi-cpufreq driver regression

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Sun Jul 22 2012 - 21:43:32 EST

3.2-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Thomas Renninger <trenn@xxxxxxx>

commit c4686c71a9183f76e3ef59098da5c098748672f6 upstream.

Commit d640113fe80e45ebd4a5b420b introduced a regression on SMP
systems where the processor core with ACPI id zero is disabled
(typically should be the case because of hyperthreading).
The regression got spread through stable kernels.
On 3.0.X it got introduced via 3.0.18.

Such platforms may be rare, but do exist.
Look out for a disabled processor with acpi_id 0 in dmesg:
ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x00] lapic_id[0x10] disabled)

This problem has been observed on a:
HP Proliant BL280c G6 blade

This patch restricts the introduced workaround to platforms
with nr_cpu_ids <= 1.
