Resolves dmesg error "intel_powerclamp: CPU does not support MWAIT".

The error that is outputted in dmesg prior to this patch
is innacurate, AMD Ryzen CPUs do support MWAIT. We could
also add the AMD vendor to the MWAIT check, but even though
AMD CPUs do support MWAIT, they fail the C-state package
check so it's better just to bail out in the beginning.

This is still running into the same problem on all other non Intel
vendors, e.g. HYGON, VIA ....

The right thing to do is to remove this silly pr_err(). It's not an
error when a CPU does not support MWAIT. It's a fact and even older
Intel CPUs do not have MWAIT.

We do not print "Machine does not have $FEATURE" in device drivers and
whatever code which depends on runtime detection either. dmesg would be
full of this.

Thanks,

I think you're resending the same patch.

As intel_powerclamp_ids already checks for Intel CPUs, so we don't need
the check for AMD CPU, but instead, just remove the following line

"pr_err("CPU does not support MWAIT\n");"

when intel_powerclamp driver fails to probe.

thanks,
rui
