Subject[13/21] Revert "x86, AMD: Fix APIC timer erratum 400 affecting K8 Rev.A-E processors"
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Borislav Petkov <borislav.petkov@amd.com>

commit 328935e6348c6a7cb34798a68c326f4b8372e68a upstream.

This reverts commit e20a2d205c05cef6b5783df339a7d54adeb50962, as it crashes
certain boxes with specific AMD CPU models.

Moving the lower endpoint of the Erratum 400 check to accomodate
earlier K8 revisions (A-E) opens a can of worms which is simply
not worth to fix properly by tweaking the errata checking
framework:

* missing IntPenging MSR on revisions < CG cause #GP:

http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=130541471818831

* makes earlier revisions use the LAPIC timer instead of the C1E
idle routine which switches to HPET, thus not waking up in
deeper C-states:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2011/4/24/20

Therefore, leave the original boundary starting with K8-revF.
