Subject[PATCH] e_powersaver: Underclock checks
Some systems are using 1.2GHz@844mV processors running at 600MHz@796mV.
Try to detect such systems and don't touch anything on it. If CPU
doesn't have
P-States in BIOS it will run on maximum frequency anyway.
Allow user to bypass checks by means of two new options.
Don't set frequency to maximum on module unloading to avoid bada boom.

Code totally untested as I have abadoned Centaur for Intel Atom two
years ago.
