Wait a minute ... having a suspend/resume method in cpufreq is one
thing, having it muck around with SMP is another :-) The ppc code
doesn't do that.

There's nothing fundamentally "fail" in requiring a switch to a given
frequency before suspend. I don't know what kind of major FAIL the K8
code is doing here though :-)

I'm happy instead of #ifdef's however to push the logic into the ppc
driver, or use a flag that the ppc driver sets to enable that logic.

Cheers,
Ben.
