What system is this running on?
The problem is that without e050e3f0a71b interrupt throttling does not work.

I think the key difference is that without the patch, frequency adjustment
happens with the PMU completely stopped whereas with my patch it does
not. I suspect this may be the issue. I can rework the patch to disable the
PMU completely while retaining the same workflow.
