This series is a backport of the ACPI PPTT 6.3 thread flag feature for
supporting arm64 systems.

The background is that some arm64 implementations are broken, in that they
incorrectly advertise that a CPU is mutli-threaded, when it is not - the
HiSilicon Taishanv110 rev 2, aka tsv110, being an example.

This leads to the system topology being incorrect. The reason being that
arm64 topology code uses a combination of ACPI PPTT (Processor Properties
Topology Table) and the system MPIDR (Multiprocessor Affinity Register) MT
bit to determine the topology.

Until ACPI 6.3, the PPTT did not have any method to determine whether
a CPU was multi-threaded, so only the MT bit is used - hence the
broken topology for some systems.

In ACPI 6.3, a PPTT thread flag was introduced, which - when supported -
would be used by the kernel to determine really if a CPU is multi-threaded
or not, so that we don't get incorrect topology.

Note: I'm sending this as an RFC before sending to stable proper. I also
have a 5.2 and 5.3 backport which are almost the same, and only
significant change being that the ACPICA patch is not required.

Commit bbd1b70639f785a970d998f35155c713f975e3ac upstream.

ACPI 6.3 adds a flag to the CPU node to indicate whether
the given PE is a thread. Add a function to return that
information for a given linux logical CPU.

Commit 98dc19902a0b2e5348e43d6a2c39a0a7d0fc639e upstream.

ACPI 6.3 adds a thread flag to represent if a CPU/PE is
actually a thread. Given that the MPIDR_MT bit may not
represent this information consistently on homogeneous machines
we should prefer the PPTT flag if its available.

These #defines are all already in actbl2.h. Perhaps they didn't make it into Linux.

Hi Bob,

Yes, they are in the latest linux mainline release.

But this patch is just a preview to backport them to an earlier kernel 
version.

Thanks,
