Bug description:
  [SRU Justification][Vivid]

  Users of Ubuntu Vivid are seeing a seemingly alarming kernel failure
  message "ACPI PCC probe failed" when in fact it is just a debug
  message informing the kernel developers that a probe for an ACPI PCC
  mailbox was not successful (which is just a debug only message) and
  not a failure one needs to worry about.   This message is asked about

  This fix landed in Wily, and the driver with the alarming message only

  error message in the kernel log. With the fix, this error is now a
  warning.  Note: This only affects Vivid.
