Thanks, I'll respin it with something similar to that.

Right; I agree this should have been the proper mechanism. I'll talk to
our internal BIOS team to double check reference BIOS is populated
with this correctly for programs going forward too.

Thanks. The definition of that CPUID 8000_0008 EBX bit 27 used
to populate X86_FEATURE_CPPC indicates whether the CPU/APU
supports the dedicated MSR. There are also technically designs that can
work in shared memory mode that I think the only way to "safely" discover
will be via the _OSC. If this same regression from 72f2ecb7ece7 crops up
on those we might need to look at changing the amd-pstate module parameter
override that enables it for shared memory into a general kernel command line
override for users to use.
