Subject: [PATCH 1/2] ACPI / CPPC: Fix processing for guaranteed performance

As per ACPI specification "Guaranteed Performance Register" is a "Buffer"
field. It can't be "Integer" field. So treat "Integer" type as invalid and
ignore "Guaranteed Performance Register".
Also save one cpc_read() call, when "Guaranteed Performance Register" is
not present, which means register defined as:
"Register(SystemMemory, 0, 0, 0, 0)".

Fixes: 29523f095397 ("ACPI / CPPC: Add support for guaranteed performance")
