Another thing to note is that some BIOS's (like the one on my COMPAQ R3000 
laptop) are broken and don't have the correct frequency table.  In order to 
get it working you have to set the ACPI cpufreq option 
(CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ).  This way the kernel will get the frequency info 
through ACPI, which is how windoze does it...
