That the cpufreq driver & some binary module doesn't play together nicely
isn't news btw, I've heard reports of both of the common binary 3d drivers
locking up when CPU scaling is used, and there is *nothing* we can do to
fix that. If those drivers are making assumptions that the cpu speed
will remain static, they're broken, and unfixable by us.
We have enough problems getting suspend working for users without
binary junk loaded, so as far as I'm concerned.. CLOSED->NOTABUG.
