I thought CPU0 is not a problem as the _PPC is sent on this and
policies gets updated from the following log.

# Unplug

[ 25.775643] CPU 0: _PPC is 6 - frequency limited
[ 25.775660] intel_pstate: set_policy cpuinfo.max 3000000 policy->max
1700000
[ 25.775666] intel_pstate: cpu:0 max_state 17 min_policy_perf:8
max_policy_perf:17
[ 25.775670] intel_pstate: cpu:0 global_min:8 global_max:30
[ 25.775674] intel_pstate: cpu:0 max_perf_ratio:17 min_perf_ratio:8

"REDUCED FREQUENCY ABOVE AFTER UNPLUG"


# Re-plug

[ 36.979264] CPU 0: _PPC is 6 - frequency limited
[ 36.979276] intel_pstate: policy->max > max non turbo frequency
[ 36.979280] intel_pstate: set_policy cpuinfo.max 3000000 policy->max
3000000
[ 36.979283] intel_pstate: cpu:0 max_state 30 min_policy_perf:8
max_policy_perf:30
[ 36.979286] intel_pstate: cpu:0 global_min:8 global_max:30
[ 36.979289] intel_pstate: cpu:0 max_perf_ratio:30 min_perf_ratio:8
