    Yes, it depends on the selected governor.

    In the case of "userspace" governor you (or a program) can set the speed
    writing to "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_setspeed".

    Usually a deamon monitor the CPU usage and increase the frequency when
    you need it.

    "ps -A" and look for something like "cpufreqd"

    There are different deamon for this: cpufreqd, cpudyn...

    Anyway it is started by an init script, so you should find it looking
    at "ls /etc/init.d/".
