Subject[PATCH 1/1] cpufreq: eeepc 900 frequency scaling driver
From
Date
From: Cristiano Prisciandaro <cristiano.p@solnet.ch>

The bios of the eeepc 900 exposes an acpi method that allows clocking
the cpu to 630/900 MHz. This driver allows controlling the frequency
switch through the cpufreq subsystem.

+ * Experimental cpu frequency scaling driver for the eeepc 900
+ *
+ * Copyright (C) 2008 Cristiano Prisciandaro <cristiano.p@solnet.ch>
+ *
+ * This driver is based on the (experimental) finding that the
+ * eeepc bios exposes a method to underclock the bus/cpu.
+ *
+ * It seems to work fine with the following BIOS versions:
+ * 0501, 0601, 0704 and 0802.
