I haven't investigated yet, but on my Lenovo ULT Haswell laptop
the IMC PCI-ID doesn't exist, so the driver doesn't initialize.

So either it's the BIOS disabling it, or it's a different ID there

BTW any reason you didn't enable the CBOX/ARB PMUs originally for HSW?
At least ARB events are useful for some things.
