Package: linux-image-2.6.16-2-xen-amd64-k8
Version: 2.6.16-14
Severity: normal


after switching to a xen-kernel the frequency scaling of my AMD Athlon64 
CPU stopped working. Instead my syslog is filled with following messages:

Jun 16 15:30:03 harry kernel: powernow-k8: fid trans failed, fid 0x2, curr 
Jun 16 15:30:03 harry kernel: powernow-k8: transition frequency failed
Jun 16 15:31:00 harry kernel: powernow-k8: fid trans failed, fid 0x2, curr 
Jun 16 15:31:00 harry kernel: powernow-k8: transition frequency failed

It seems that there is a patch[0] available and according to the 
posting[1] of another person having that problem it fixes the issue.

Have not tested the patch yet but I am willing to test prepared packages
when someone integrates the changes.
