 cpufreq: intel_pstate: remove obsolete functions

on top of commit e71ba9452f0b5b2e8dc8aa5445198cd9214a6a62

 Linux 5.11-rc2

to receive power management fixes for 5.11-rc3.

These address two issues in the intel_pstate driver and one in the
powernow-k8 cpufreq driver.


 - Make the powernow-k8 cpufreq driver avoid calling cpufreq_cpu_get(),
   which theoretically may return NULL, to get a policy pointer that
   is known to it already (Colin Ian King).

 - Drop two functions that are not used any more from the intel_pstate
   driver (Lukas Bulwahn).

 - Make intel_pstate check the HWP capabilities to get the maximum
   available P-state in the passive mode to avoid using a stale value
   of it in case of out-of-band updates (Rafael Wysocki).



Colin Ian King (1):
      cpufreq: powernow-k8: pass policy rather than use cpufreq_cpu_get()

Lukas Bulwahn (1):
      cpufreq: intel_pstate: remove obsolete functions

Rafael J. Wysocki (1):
      cpufreq: intel_pstate: Use HWP capabilities in intel_cpufreq_adjust_perf()
