Yes, it is 800000, but while the patch is probably the right thing
to do it doesn't help for cpufreq_stats_create_table:
[ 5.740826] powernow-k8: fid 0x2 (1000 MHz), vid 0x12
[ 5.740941] powernow-k8: fid 0xa (1800 MHz), vid 0xa
[ 5.741057] powernow-k8: fid 0xc (2000 MHz), vid 0x8
[ 5.741170] powernow-k8: fid 0xe (2200 MHz), vid 0x8
[ 5.741304] cpufreq_stats_create_table: policy->cur is 800000
[ 5.741475] last_index set to -1 in cpufreq_stats_create_table!

I think policy->cur used here probably set in powernowk8_cpu_init.
