[PATCH v2] cpufreq: intel_pstate: Fix policy data management in passive mode




From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@xxxxxxxxx>

The policy->cpuinfo.max_freq and policy->max updates in
intel_cpufreq_turbo_update() are excessive as they are done for no
good reason and may lead to problems in principle, so they should be
dropped.  However, after dropping them intel_cpufreq_turbo_update()
becomes entirely pointless, because the check made by it is made
again down the road in intel_pstate_prepare_request(), so drop
the entire intel_cpufreq_turbo_update().

In addition to that, fix intel_cpufreq_verify_policy() so that it
checks global.no_turbo in addition to global.turbo_disabled when
updating policy->cpuinfo.max_freq to make it consistent with
intel_pstate_verify_policy().

Fixes: 001c76f05b01 (cpufreq: intel_pstate: Generic governors support)

-> v2: Drop intel_cpufreq_turbo_update() as it is pointless without the
          excessive updates that need to be dropped.
