Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 14/32] perf/x86/intel: Initialize TFA MSR

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@...radead.org>

[ Upstream commit d7262457e35dbe239659e62654e56f8ddb814bed ]

Stephane reported that the TFA MSR is not initialized by the kernel,
but the TFA bit could set by firmware or as a leftover from a kexec,
which makes the state inconsistent.
