Subject: [PATCH 0/2][RFC v2] Update the cpuinfo.max when power supply changes

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.

Firstly we should update the cpuinfo.max in this corner case,
secondly we should broadcast the _PPC notifier to all online
CPUs to keep information consistent.

Chen Yu (2):
  ACPI: add "processor.broadcast_ppc" hook to broadcast  _PPC
  ACPI: Update cpuinfo.max after bootup if necessary
