You could start by trying 2.6.16-rc1, -rc2, -rc3 and find out in which
kernel it changed. Then, read the changelog for that patch to find out
what changed in the cpufreq driver. So far, no great skill required.
Then, post here, mentioning which patch caused the different behaviour.

Despite the best efforts of a quantum bigfoot drive (yes I know everyone
told me they suck, now I know they were right) 2.1.109ac1 is now available
Alan Cox announcing Linux 2.1.109ac1
Debian (Unstable) GNU/Linux 2.6.18-mm3 2x5042 bogomips load 0.91
