[CPUFREQ] Enable ACPI PDC handshake for VIA/Centaur CPUs
In commit 0de51088e6a82bc8413d3ca9e28bbca2788b5b53, we introduced the use of acpi-cpufreq on VIA/Centaur CPU's by removing a vendor check for VENDOR_INTEL. However, as it turns out, at least the Nano CPU's also need the PDC (processor driver capabilities) handshake in order to activate the methods required for acpi-cpufreq. Since arch_acpi_processor_init_pdc() contains another vendor check for Intel, the PDC is not initialized on VIA CPU's. The resulting behavior of a current mainline kernel on such systems is: acpi-cpufreq loads and it indicates CPU frequency changes. However, the CPU stays at a single frequency This trivial patch ensures that init_intel_pdc() is called on Intel and VIA/Centaur CPU's alike.
