ACPI: create "processor.bm_check_disable" boot param
processor.bm_check_disable=1" prevents Linux from checking BM_STS before entering C3-type cpu power states. This may be useful for a system running acpi_idle where the BIOS exports FADT C-states, _CST IO C-states, or _CST FFH C-states with the BM_STS bit set; while configuring the chipset to set BM_STS more frequently than perhaps is optimal. Note that such systems may have been developed using a tickful OS that would quickly clear BM_STS, rather than a tickless OS that may go for some time between checking and clearing BM_STS. Note also that an alternative for newer systems is to use the intel_idle driver, which always ignores BM_STS, relying Linux device drivers to register constraints explicitly via PM_QOS. https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15886 Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
