    SubjectRe: + restore-missing-sysfs-max_cstate-attr.patch added to -mm tree
    1. Why does VMware need max_cstate=1 to load quickly?
    It should not, and the fact that it does means
    that something somewhere is seriously broken.

    2. Why does the "max_csate=1" workaround help only
    on the dual-core boxes, while the single-core
    boxes still fail to load quickly?

    I'm glad that we deleted run-time access to max_cstate --
    it seems to have exposed a real bug that needs fixing
    and has gone unreported until now.

    Indeed, when the real bug is fixed, I propose that
    we again move to delete max_cstate as a run-time API.
