[PATCH][RFC] ACPI: add "processor.broadcast_ppc" hook to broadcast _PPC to all online CPUs




On Dell Inc. XPS13 9333, the BIOS changes the value of
MSR_IA32_MISC_ENABLE_TURBO_DISABLE at runtime (e.g., when
the power source changes), the maximum frequency of the
CPU is not updated accordingly. This is due to the policy's
cpuinfo.max is not updated when _PPC notifier fires.

Fix this problem by updating the policy's cpuinfo.max
and broadcast the _PPC notifier to all online CPUs.
