Subject[PATCH V2 03/10] x86/resctrl: Constrain C-states during pseudo-lock region init
Date
CPUs associated with a pseudo-locked cache region are prevented
from entering C6 and deeper C-states to ensure that the
power savings associated with those C-states cannot impact
the pseudo-locked region by forcing the pseudo-locked memory to
be evicted.

When supporting pseudo-locked regions that span L2 and L3 cache
levels it is not necessary to prevent all CPUs associated with both
cache levels from entering deeper C-states. Instead, only the
CPUs associated with the L2 cache need to be limited. This would
potentially result in more power savings since another L2 cache
that does not have a pseudo-locked region but share the L3 cache
would be able to enter power savings.

In preparation for limiting the C-states only where required the code to
do so is moved to earlier in the pseudo-lock region initialization.
Moving this code has the consequence that its actions need to be undone
in more error paths. This is accommodated by moving the C-state cleanup
code to the generic cleanup code (pseudo_lock_region_clear()) and
ensuring that the C-state cleanup code can handle the case when C-states
have not yet been constrained.

Also in preparation for limiting the C-states only on required CPUs the
function now accepts a parameter that specifies which CPUs should have
their C-states constrained - at this time the parameter is still used
for all CPUs associated with the pseudo-locked region.
