Situation is very different with v4.6 distro based kernel.

CPU MHz is only getting values round to 100MHz. It does not go above
2.5GHz, but it does not go below 2.5GHz under the load, either.

ACPI adapter appears in sensors output.

Now I tried going to 5.2-rc4. It behaves the same as 5.2-rc2. Goes up
to 3GHz briefly but then down to 2.0GHz and below under load.

Ideas welcome.

Best regards,
Pavel
