    Subjectcpufreq stops working after a while
    One of my notebooks (Dell Latitude X1) has a 1.1GHz Pentium-M ULV processor.
    This chip can change CPU speeds from 600 -> 800 -> 1100 Mhz.

    I use speedstep-centrino with it, and after boot all is usually okay.
    But after a few hours of operation, it stops shifting to the highest frequency
    even under continuous 100% load (or not). Eventually it gets stuck at 600Mhz
    and stays there until I reboot.

    Sometimes rebooting doesn't even restore it.

    /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq is all very normal looking,
    showing the available frequencies and other info. All of the attribs
    there look fine, except for "scaling_max_freq", which is what seems
    to gradually get set smaller. For instance, right now it is set to 800000,
    and it won't let me change it (echo 11000000 > scaling_max_freq has no effect.

    WHY? And how can I fix it?
