Subject: [PATCH][v3] cpufreq: intel_pstate: Get percpu max freq via HWP MSR register if available

Currently when turbo is disabled(either by BIOS or by the user), the
intel_pstate driver reads the max non-turbo frequency from the package-wide
MSR_PLATFORM_INFO(0xce) register. However on asymmetric platforms it is
possible in theory that small and big core with HWP enabled might have
different max non-turbo cpu frequency, because the MSR_HWP_CAPABILITIES
is percpu scope according to Intel Software Developer Manual.

The turbo max freq is already percpu basis in current code, thus make
similar change to the max non-turbo frequency as well.

v2: Per Srinivas' suggestion, avoid duplicated assignment of max_pstate.
v3: Per Rafael's suggestion, do not add new argument in intel_pstate_get_hwp_max()
    to avoid redundant local vars.
    Per Srinivas' suggestion, refined the commit log to reflect the 'non-turbo'
    max frequency.
