Package: powernowd
Severity: normal

One notices that
$ cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_min_freq
has been changed by installation and removal of cpufreqd. It is so
high here.

But installing cpudynd or powernowd don't set it back. So they don't
"play with a full deck". Therefore both cpudynd and powernowd should
do something like
  cat cpuinfo_min_freq > scaling_min_freq
  cat cpuinfo_max_freq > scaling_max_freq
upon installation.  And cpufreqd should do the same upon removal.
This bug will be sent to all three packages.

Also powernowd -dvvv shows it stepping down all 8 steps, but the stats
files shows it only stepped down two steps, due to the above artifical
limit left over. I suppose -dvvv shows what powernowd tells the kernel
to do, not necessarily what really happens. Maybe the man page should
mention that.
