    Don't be silly.

    Did you even *look* at the patches?

    We're talking about things like


    so please tell me what drugs you are on that say that we should move this
    into kernel/* and drivers/* and make all architectures benefit. It's
    *x86* specific, it's just that k8 exists both in 32-bit and 64-bit land.

    The file is *already* shared, it's just that right now it is not in a
    shared location. Right now it is in arch/i386/ (as if it was
    i386-specific) and then x86-64 includes it with:


    # Reuse the i386 cpufreq drivers

    SRCDIR := ../../../i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq

    and anybody who thinks this is "nice" simply has no taste at all.
