Subject3.9.0 + CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE=y -> ThinkPad T420 with i5 lost ACPI functionality
The following file doesn't exists at my Gentoo Linux
in 3.9.0 if I activate CONFIG_X86_INTEL_PSTATE=y

That means, that a command like

$> echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/ignore_nice_load

in /etc/rc.local is now no longer working.
A high fan + high temperature are the result, even if just the BOINC client
is run with low prio (nice 19) in the back ground.

Manually loading the missing module won't work too :

$> modprobe acpi_cpufreq
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'acpi_cpufreq': Device or resource busy

Is the behaviour a bug or a feature ?
In the later case: How can I achieve the previous behaviour back ?

This issue might affect the RH EL kernel too [1] where I observed a similar behaviour.
