Subject[PATCH V2 1/6] cpuidle/pseries: Fix kernel command line parameter smt-snooze-delay
From
Date
smt-snooze-delay is tunable provided currently on powerpc to delay the
entry of an idle cpu to NAP state. By default, the value is 100us,
which is entry criteria for NAP state i.e only if the idle period is
above 100us it would enter NAP. Value of -1 disables entry into NAP.
This value can be set either through sysfs, ppc64_cpu util or by
passing it via kernel command line. Currently this feature is broken
when the value is passed via the kernel command line.

This patch aims to fix this, by taking the appropritate action
based on the value after the pseries driver is registered.
This check is carried on in the backend driver rather in
setup_smt_snooze_delay() as one is not sure if the cpuidle driver
is even registered when setup routine is executed.
Also, this fixes re-enabling of NAP states by setting appropriate
value without having to reboot.

Also, to note is, smt-snooze-delay is per-cpu variable.
This can be used to enable/disable NAP on per-cpu
basis using sysfs but when this variable is passed
via kernel command line or using the smt-snooze-delay
it applies to all the cpus. Per-cpu tuning can
only be done via sysfs.
