We are trying to avoid a separate IPI for APERF and MPERF. We have seen
that a separate IPI for

each can cause APERF and MPERF to go out of sync.


If the cpupower is already executing on the core it wants to get the
APERF/MPERF from, then

generic_exec_single() does not generate the IPI to execute the rdmsr().
Rather it just executes

on the current cpu.


I can change the description to add more detail.

We set the is_valid[cpu] to the return value. Later on the is_valid[cpu]

is checked before proceeding to calculate the effective freq.


Thanks.
