Subject[PATCH][RFC v2] ACPI: acpi_pad: Do not launch acpi_pad threads on idle cpus
Date
According to current implementation of acpi_pad driver,
it does not make sense to spawn any power saving threads
on the cpus which are already idle - it might bring
unnecessary overhead on these idle cpus and causes power
waste. So verify the condition that if the number of 'busy'
cpus exceeds the amount of the 'forced idle' cpus is met.
This is applicable due to round-robin attribute of the
power saving threads, otherwise ignore the setting/ACPI
notification.
