If the read_msr function is executed by a non-root user, the function returns 
-1, which means that there is no permission to access /dev/cpu/%d/msr, but 
cpufreq_has_boost_support should also return -1 immediately, and should not
follow the original logic to return 0, which will cause amd The cpupower tool
returns the boost active state as 0.

Reproduce procedure:
        cpupower frequency-info
