[Bug 1430625] Re: ACPI PCC probe failed.


More painful when it comes up during installation process.

IDK about when a true fix to code might happen but...

a NOPCC option would nice for initial installations where newer users
are not yet building their own kernels.

Better yet to help true noobs and expedite things everyone wanting to do a quick and dirty install before recompiling...
couldn't options for MOBO architecture be set  automatically based on a quick examination of BIOS date?

For instance the hardware for PCC simply did not exist before a certain
date. So that code ideally should be automatically turned off if the
BIOS date is not later than that.  Not a complete or perfect solution of
course. But I suspect the volume of problem reports would be
dramatically reduced as many newer Linux inductees tend to either start
with well used older hardware or brand new hardware.
