yes, the problem is still to cover the variety of supported processor
speeds (this problem was missing in my first post).
Eg.: Speedstep has only 2 frequencies, Enhenced
Speedstep/Powernow/Centrino/etc. support more than 2.
So providing a default configuration is most of the times meaningless by
Perhaps I could provide a very simple 2 state configuration (a full speed
state and a low speed state - using /proc/cpuinfo as suggested by
Wouter) and suggest through debconf a reconfiguration based on user
