may I also suggest 436fe7b8b4a5016ef1fcb32bff77bde84003e15d ?

description is:
[CPUFREQ] Make powernow-k7 work on SMP kernels.
Even though powernow-k7 doesn't work in SMP environments,
it can work on an SMP configured kernel if there's only
one CPU present, however recalibrate_cpu_khz was returning
-EINVAL on such kernels, so we failed to init the cpufreq driver.

Current k7 kernels are being built with SMP=y so they don't allow
powernow-k7 being loaded on non-SMP on UP systems.
A similar fix has been in Ubuntu kernels since February.
The same patch is probably useful for 2.6.16 too.
