Bug Description

[Impact]
The cppc-cpufreq driver fails to initialize on ThunderX2 systems, which is used to communicate power configuration to firmware.

[Test Case]
sudo modprobe cppc-cpufreq || echo "Fail"

[Regression Risk]
The fix consists of clean cherry-picks from upstream that are restricted to a single driver. Regressions would therefore be restricted to platforms that support ACPI CPPC power management.

@Khaled: I don't see these patches in artful/master-next, so I'm going to move back the artful task back to "In Progress". Can you confirm if these will be integrated for the next cycle, or if I should resubmit?

Scratch that - I see these changes queued on the master-next-backlog branch, moving back to Fix Committed :)

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-done-artful'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-failed-artful'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
