Actually, SpeedStep is (so far, Banias isn't out to the public market yet)
only 2 states. What you had running was probably the p4-clockmod driver for
Intel Pentium 4 processors. But that does only throttle the CPU, which
causes (at best) linear energy saving while real "speedstep" is much better
than that. You can see what cpufreq driver is loaded by cat'ting
scaling_driver in the cpufreq sysfs directory for that cpu.

This directory moved in 2.5.64 - and that's why you probably think there was
some regression (in fact, there is, but patches to fix that are on their
way...) - the sysfs interface to cpufreq is now in
/sys/devices/sys/cpu0/cpufreq/ or
/sys/class/cpu/cpufreq/cpu0/cpufreq/

lspci -- maybe it's a ich4-m southbridge, then the attached patch (also sent to
Linus a few moments ago) might help.
