[PATCH 3.11 099/128] intel_pstate: Set CPU number before accessing MSRs

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Thu Jul 24 2014 - 05:59:10 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Vincent Minet <vincent@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 179e8471673ce0249cd4ecda796008f7757e5bad upstream.

Ensure that cpu->cpu is set before writing MSR_IA32_PERF_CTL during CPU
initialization. Otherwise only cpu0 has its P-state set and all other
cores are left with their values unchanged.

In most cases, this is not too serious because the P-states will be set
correctly when the timer function is run. But when the default governor
is set to performance, the per-CPU current_pstate stays the same forever
and no attempts are made to write the MSRs again.

[ luis: backported to 3.11:
- moved cpu->cpu up, instead of intel_pstate_get_cpu_pstates() down ]
