is acpi-cpufreq loaded ? and cpufreq-ondemand ?
(Also make sure the relevant sysfs knobs are set to use ondemand)

If no: Make them so!
If yes: boot with cpufreq.debug=7 and send the dmesg
to cpufreq@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx



I've managed to have cat /proc/cpuinfo
read correctly. somewhere somehow
when compiling xserver I Installed
some package that messed up libpowersaved11
and liblazy1. reinstalling those packages as well
as the other powersaved packages seems to have resolved this
issue for me.(as well as haveing cpufreq running correctly);

I just can't remember what might the package be that
caused this to go crazy.(oh-well);
as long as the fans aren't screaming/or stuck I'm happy...
