2.6.12-rc6 missing commit(s) in cpufreq?

According to:

There should be a:

commit 1206aaac285904e3e3995eecbf4129b6555a8973

[CPUFREQ] Allow ondemand stepping to be changed by user.

And when I look at:

There are changes in the diff like:

--- drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq_ondemand.c
+++ drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq_ondemand.c
@@ -79,6 +79,7 @@ struct dbs_tuners {
unsigned int up_threshold;
unsigned int down_threshold;
unsigned int ignore_nice;
+ unsigned int freq_step;

Problem is that neither a clean 2.6.11 patched with patch-2.6.12-rc6 nor
a full linux-2.6.12-rc6.tar.bz (I just downloaded it) contain that

The first example from above looks like:

struct dbs_tuners {
unsigned int sampling_rate;
unsigned int sampling_down_factor;
unsigned int up_threshold;
unsigned int ignore_nice;

Even more strange is the other discrepancies in that list, suggesting
other missed commits. Live directory from 2.6.12-rc :

root:sleipner:/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ondemand# ls
total 0
0 ignore_nice 0 sampling_rate 0 sampling_rate_min
0 sampling_down_factor 0 sampling_rate_max 0 up_threshold

Perhaps this is why I can't get the conservative governor to work at all
(it just sits at the freq at which it was loaded, never going up/down no
matter the load).
