[CPUFREQ] acpi-cpufreq: blacklist Intel 0f68: Fix HT detection and put in notification message
Removing the SMT/HT check, since the Errata doesn't mention Hyper-Threading. Adding in a printk, so that the user knows why acpi-cpufreq refuses to load. Also, once system is blacklisted, don't repeat checks to see if blacklisted. This also causes the message to only be printed once, rather than for each CPU. Signed-off-by: John L.
