Blame Intel for that.

The specs aren't really put for this particular processor. Now the reason why 
it isn't available is not known, probably a marketing reason.

There was a patch long back on lkml to print a message in dmesg when this cpu 
was seen, to show that the kernel doesn't support Speedstep on this 
processor.

I don't know the current state. Probably it won't be implemented.
