Subject[PATCH] ACPI: create proc entry 'power' only if C2 or C3 is supported
From
Date
Subject: ACPI: Create proc entry 'power' only C2 or C3 is supported
From: Yi Yang <yi.y.yang@intel.com>

ACPI processor idle driver makes sense only if the processor supports
C2 or C3. For legacy C0 and C1, just the original pm_idle is working
, statistics info about promotion, demotion, latency, usage and
duration are empty or 0, so these are misleading, users'll think their
CPUs support C states (C2 or C3), /proc/acpi/processor/CPU*/power
shouldn't exist for this case at all.

This patch fixes this issue, it makes ACPI processor idle driver to create
proc entry only if the processor supports C2 or C3.
