It is fine without the patch, but see notes below.

It is fine, just an annoying warning.

Without the patch it displays the annoying warning and works fine under load
for days, never had a problem with stability. However, for those who can
hear high pitch noise, it emits a high-pitch/frequency that is irritating
when there is no CPU utilization/when the machine is idle. This does not
occur when processor.ko is not loaded (the message, or the noise).
