cpufreq: intel_pstate: Enable PPC enforcement for servers

For platforms which are controlled via remove node manager, enable _PPC by
default. These platforms are mostly categorized as enterprise server or
performance servers. These platforms needs to go through some
certifications tests, which tests control via _PPC.
The relative risk of enabling by default is  low as this is is less likely
that these systems have broken _PSS table.
