Commit 983e600e8883 added this update_turbo_state() call, but it is
needed by intel_pstate_init_acpi_perf_limits() here below. I should
have mentioned it in the commit message.

However, I've just realized that a similar problem to that I'm trying
to fix can occur on those systems where core_frequency is adjusted
depending on the availability of the turbo.

The call to update_turbo_state() could also be moved in
intel_pstate_init_acpi_perf_limits(), right before the check on
global.turbo_disabled.
