Yes, a known problem. Please note that Dominik no longer maintains
CPUfreq, please don't copy him with reports anymore.

The above is a result of a mismerge between the CPUfreq bits Dominik
sent me and the bits Dominik sent Linus. Dominik left a set of seven
patches which need to go in, which davej took care of, but afaik Linus
hasn't accepted them (in fact, Linus has been quiet on the subject.)
Since davej has taken these patches under his wing, I'm not intending
pushing the patches to Linus.

So, this poses us with a small problem... will it remain broken for
2.5.65 or will Linus merge the required patches...

I'll forward the patches to LKML in a moment.
