Yes, this bug is described in the changelog, I'll remove the link.

As discussed with Doug in the v4 patch, the problem brought by clock modulation
is because intel_pstate use a theoretical pstate to calculate the cpu busy ratio,
and Doug has proposed a patch to use compensatory algorithm in intel_pstate,
to predict the pstate based on actual cpu freq(take clock modulation into account),
which can fix his problem now.
So I'll resend a version 6 of current patch, because some server in production
environment has suffered from this problem for some time.. thanks.

Best regards,
