Please be more precise. What is "target" here? Host? Guest?
Also, reporting issues just verbally (i.e. without any logs or other
actual technical information) rarely makes a lot of sense.

But the change is only about C-state handling for a particular
CPU model. There's really nothing being added that doesn't
already work fine elsewhere. I.e. this patch being the apparent
culprit of a problem you see makes it relatively likely that your
hardware is having some issue.
