Just find another problem.
We're still missing this upstream
commit 3105f234e0aba43e44e277c20f9b32ee8add43d4 (thermal/powerclamp:
correct cpu support check) for 4.7 stable, and in this case, we can not
queue this patch for both 4.7 and 4.8 stable at the moment because it
does not apply to 4.7 stable.

I will send this patch out asap to catch 4.9, and then send a note to
stable kernel with the following Option 2
in Documentation/stable_kernel_rules.txt after it's merged.

thanks,
rui
