Subject[PATCH 05/12] ACPI: processor: add internal processor_physically_present()
From
Date
Detect if a processor is physically present before evaluating _PDC.

We want this because some BIOS will provide a _PDC even for processors
that are not present. These bogus _PDC methods then attempt to load
non-existent tables, which causes problems.

Avoid those bogus landmines.
