With `conservative' or `performance' the CPU scales up correctly (well, with
performance it is always scaled up). With `ondemand' it doesn't.
This has noticeable consequences: compiling is slow, flash videos are sluggish.
So I do have a problem. And I want a governor that scales down my CPU,
especially on battery. I could stick with `conservative' but I'd like to get to
the bottom of this since `ondemand' is usually the best option for modern CPUs.
