    Subject[PATCH] hwmon: coretemp: avoid RDMSR interruptions to isolated CPUs

    The coretemp driver uses rdmsr_on_cpu calls to read
    which contain information about current core temperature.

    For certain low latency applications, the RDMSR interruption exceeds
    the applications requirements.

    So disable reading of crit_alarm and temp files via /sys, in case
    CPU isolation is enabled.

    Temperature information from the housekeeping cores should be
    sufficient to infer die temperature.
