I'm not sure if this would help, but the powernow-k8 that I am using here is a
later version ("version 1.20.08b - March 20, 2004") which I found out about
on Ted Kisner's install report for amd64 on the compaq-r3000. The .c and .h
files for this version can be found off the page at
Quotomg his page: these files "replace the powernow-k8 files
in /arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/ with a newer version found here:
(powernow-k8.c) (powernow-k8.h) These files will let you control the CPU
frequency using the ACPI interface, which is necessary since the BIOS
frequency tables are broken"
This requires re-compiling the kernel yourself, of course. Hope that helps.
