Alan, David Jones, Jeff Garzik, and other affected parties that
/proc/sys/cpu/#/whatever would be a reasonable. It has even appeared on

for /proc/sys/cpu, and it is used by the cpufreq code to provide:


However, it's true that some of that needs to be pulled out so anything
can use /proc/sys/cpu/#. Just takes the necessary parties to get together
