Subject[PATCH] ACPI: fix processor throttling set error
From
Date
Subject: ACPI: fix processor throttling set error
From: Yi Yang <yi.y.yang@intel.com>

When echo some invalid values to /proc/acpi/processor/*/throttling,
there isn't any error info returned, on the contray, it sets
throttling value to some T* successfully, obviously, this is incorrect,
a correct way should be to let it fail and return error info.
This patch fixed the aforementioned issue, it also enables
/proc/acpi/processor/*/throttling to accept such values as 't0' and 'T0',
it also strictly limits /proc/acpi/processor/*/throttling only to accept
"*", "t*" and "T*", "*" is the throttling state value the processor can
support, current, it is 0 - 7.
Before applying this patch, the test result is below:
