Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.7 04/58] x86, sched: Bail out of frequency invariance if turbo frequency is unknown

From: Giovanni Gherdovich <ggherdovich@...e.cz>

[ Upstream commit 51beea8862a3095559862df39554f05042e1195b ]

There may be CPUs that support turbo boost but don't declare any turbo
ratio, i.e. their MSR_TURBO_RATIO_LIMIT is all zeroes. In that condition
scale-invariant calculations can't be performed.

Fixes: 1567c3e3467c ("x86, sched: Add support for frequency invariance")
