Subject[PATCH v2] cpupower : Handle set and info subcommands correctly
Date
Cpupower tool has set and info options which are being used only by
x86 machines. This patch removes support for these two subcommands
from generic cpupower utility. Thus, these two subcommands will now be
available only for intel.
This removes the ambiguous error message while using set option in case
of using non-intel systems.

Without this patch on a non-intel box:

root@ubuntu:~# cpupower info
System does not support Intel's performance bias setting

root@ubuntu:~# cpupower set -b 10
Error setting perf-bias value on CPU

With this patch on a non-intel box:

root@ubuntu:~# cpupower info
Supported commands are:
frequency-info
frequency-set
idle-info
idle-set
monitor
help

Same result for set subcommand.

This patch does not affect results on a intel box.

changes from v1:
Instead of bailing out early in set and info commands, in V2, we
are cutting out support for these two commands for non-intel
systems.
