Won't you also need to patch drivers/cpufreq/acpi-cpufreq.c to not load
on the processors that you want this driver to run on ?


For the case where both are built-in the load order works my driver uses
device_initcall() and acpi_cpufreq uses late_initcall().

For the case where both are a module (which I was sure I tested) you are right
I will have to do something.

For now I propose to make my driver built-in only while I sort out the right
solution for the module build. Does this seem reasonable to everyone?
