I compiled 4.10-rc8 kernel with a stock 
'/boot/config-4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64' config from Debian Jessie backports. 
Then I reverted BIOS settings to previous state and rebooted the server. 
Kernel and all modules loaded normally, rmmod/insmod intel_rapl_perf 
passed normally.

Then, without any BIOS change, I rebooted with stock 4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 
and suprisingly, everything works, I cannot reproduce it.

My knowledge on the field of BIOS are shallow. I don't know what I can 
do to reproduce the bug now.

King redards, Miloslav
