Subject[-v2 PATCH 1/6] x86, cpu: Add AMD core boosting feature flag to /proc/cpuinfo
Date
From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@amd.com>

By semi-popular demand, this adds the Core Performance Boost feature
flag to /proc/cpuinfo. Possible use case for this is userspace tools
like cpufreq-aperf, for example, so that they don't have to jump through
hoops of accessing "/dev/cpu/%d/cpuid" in order to check for CPB hw
support, or call cpuid from userspace.
