Subjectcpufreq doesn't seem to work in Intel Q9300

I have an Intel Core 2 Quad and running kernel cpufreq doesn't seem to work. The cpufreq
scaling monitor in Gnome says CPU Freq scaling is not supported in my
CPU. The CPU can run at 2.0 and 2.5 GHz but mine always runs at 2.5
GHz in Linux.

So I checked /sys and there is no cpufreq dir in /sys/...

# ls /sys/devices/system/cpu/
cpu0 cpu1 cpu2 cpu3 cpuidle sched_mc_power_savings
# ls /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuidle/
current_driver current_governor_ro

I have no clue what cpuidle directory is for.

I added cpufreq.debug=7 in kernel boot params and saw the following in
the dmesg:

speedstep-smi: No supported Intel CPU detected.
cpufreq-core: CPU 0: _PPC is 0 - frequency not limited
cpufreq-core: CPU 3: _PPC is 0 - frequency not limited
cpufreq-core: CPU 1: _PPC is 0 - frequency not limited
cpufreq-core: CPU 2: _PPC is 0 - frequency not limited
cpuidle: using governor ladder
cpuidle: using governor menu

I looked at arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/speedstep-smi.c and it seems
to detect only Pentium IIIs.

Anyone know what files have the cpufreq code for Intel Core 2?
Does cpufreq support Intel Core 2 Quads? Especially the Q9300? If not,
anything I can do to help?
