[PATCH] Correct bound checking from the value returned from _PPC method.
Dave Jones [Thu, 23 Nov 2006 01:42:01 +0000 (20:42 -0500)]
processor_perflib.c::acpi_processor_ppc_notifier() check if the value
returned by the processor's _PPC method is 0 and return failed if so.
This is wrong since 0 indicate that the bios think the processor can go
to the highest frequency.  This patch for example fix the HP NX 6125 to
allow its highest frequency to be available.
