    cpufreq_conservative should be marked broken on SMP - I have used it on UP
    boxes without trouble but I can't even safely modprobe it on SMP - it nearly
    ate my filesystem.

    And there seem to be multiple different problems with it - I get different
    oopses depending upon whether or not I have loaded it before or after the
    ondemand module. Weird enough - cpufreq_conservative shares much of it's
    code with cpufreq_ondemand, which works without any problem.

    Let me know if anyone has objection to marking cpufreq_conservative
    depends !SMP - I am planning to submit a patch soon.
