Description Jaroslav Škarvada 2013-02-22 05:38:02 EST
Description of problem:
cpupower set -m doesn't work. From the source code it seems this feature is not implemented, but the error message is misleading and can be wrongly interpreted as the feature is not supported by your platform.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cpupowerutils-1.1-1.el6

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_mc_power_savings; cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_mc_power_savings
2. cpupower set -m 0
  
Actual results:
0
Error setting sched-mc not supported

Expected results:
0
sched-mc set

Additional info:
I think it would be enough to change the message to something like:
Error setting sched-mc not implemented

or remove the feature entirely (upstream kernel drops the sched_mc_power_savings).
