    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.
