Nice thing isThis actually worked (more as a bug) with the est module as well (always operating on the current core). However, I could not see any benefit setting a lower frequency/voltage: The CPU would run slower, but the fan would turn on equally often.
that one can set voltage and frequency idependently of each other, at least on
my cpu ;-) And it was working with estd.The fan is another thing to control -- e.g. all the ThinkPads suffer from badly programmed embedded controller which is responsible for how it works.
Anyway, estd should change the frequency depending on system load. I tried it on my laptop simply by running make buildworld and it worked as expected.
Sure it's possible! :-)Now it's probably non-compilableIt would be really awesome if you maybe could find the time to integrate this into the sources and submit a patch, as you have already considerable experience. Do you think this might be possible?
after some SYSINIT-related macros had been renamed.
Note that it's based only on intel docs and my own experiments so there might
be bugs in it.
I'll work on it and send patches. Have you got some core2duo machine to test it before I post it to the submit list?
