[PATCH][v5] ACPI throttling: Disable the MSR T-state if enabled after resumed

Previously a bug was reported that on certain Broadwell
platform, after resumed from S3, the CPU is running at
an anomalously low speed, due to the BIOS has enabled the
MSR throttling across S3. The solution to this was to introduce
a quirk framework to save/restore tstate MSR register around
suspend/resume, in Commit 7a9c2dd08ead ("x86/pm:
Introduce quirk framework to save/restore extra MSR
registers around suspend/resume").

However there are still three problems left:
1. More and more reports show that other platforms also
   encountered the same issue, so the quirk list might
   be endless.
2. Each CPUs should take the save/restore operation into
   consideration, rather than the boot CPU alone.
3. Normally ACPI T-state re-evaluation is done on resume,
   however there is no _TSS on the bogus platform, thus
   above re-evaluation code does not run on that machine.

This patch is based on the fact that, we generally should not
expect the system to come back from resume with throttling
enabled, but leverage the OS components to deal with it,
such as thermal event. So we simply clear the MSR T-state
and print the warning if it is found to be enabled after
resumed back. Besides, we can remove the quirk in previous patch
