  intel_pstate no_turbo patch from upstream

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  If you're on ubuntu_saucy and enabled intel_pstate like you should via
  the kernel boot parameter intel_pstate=enabled, you will find that the
  no_turbo setting[1] sometimes does not work.

  This is fixed in 3.12[2] and it should be backported to Saucy as it is
  a critical feature for those who experience overheating with turbo on.
