SubjectIncorrect CPU Frequency in /proc/cpuinfo
 There is a problem with the display of CPU Frequency in /proc/cpuinfo.
It displays the CPU Frequency correctly... until you change the speed
manually with the kernel's frequency scaling. Before I do this, my
frequency displayed in /proc/cpuinfo is: "3208.757", This is correct.
Then I: "||echo 600000 /sys/devices/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_setspeed"
The file "scaling_setspeed" shows 600000, which is correct. My CPU does
change to that speed (I've run tests before and after, and temperature,
etc), yet /proc/cpuinfo shows no change, no matter what clock speed I
set it to.

I tried this on kernel 2.6.12-gentoo-r7, 2.6.13-rc6, 2.6.13-rc7, and it
still happened. I have a Pentium 4 2.4C (Northwood) with
Hyper-Threading. It is overclocked to 3.2GHz. I run Gentoo Base System
version 1.6.13.
