[Xen-devel] [PATCH] acpi: Fix an incorrect code path in acpi_processor_idle()

Hi, There seems to be an incorrect code path in acpi_processor_idle(). ACPI_STATE_C3 code path might need to be avoided when cpu tries to enter c2 but lapic_timer_c2_ok is not set. This bug affects some amd systems which have c2 state available. The XenServer 6.0 performance issue[1] should also be fixed by this patch. If it looks fine, please apply it to unstable, 4.1 and 4.0
