Subject[PATCH] [18/20] x86: Don't disable TSC in any C states on AMD Fam10h
Date

The ACPI code currently disables TSC use in any C2 and C3
states. But the AMD Fam10h BKDG documents that the TSC
will never stop in any C states when the CONSTANT_TSC bit is
set. Make this disabling conditional on CONSTANT_TSC
not set on AMD.

I actually think this is true on Intel too for C2 states
on CPUs with p-state invariant TSC, but this needs
further discussions with Len to really confirm :-)

So far it is only enabled on AMD.
