I wonder if you can do the same thing I've just advised Mel to do. That is,
take my linux-next branch:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm.git linux-next

(which is new material for 4.12 on top of 4.11-rc7) and reduce
INTEL_PSTATE_DEFAULT_SAMPLING_INTERVAL (in intel_pstate.c) in it by 1/2
(force load-based if need be, I'm not sure what PM profile of your test system
is).

Thanks,
Rafael
