is there a reason we cant incorporate smoothass governors etc into the kernel? limiting to 500mhz is pretty unproductive...if your require alot of processing itll take twice as long at 500mhz to accomplish its instructions...thus using the cpu twice as long as it would have if it was able to ramp up to 1ghz to take care of it.
lower cpu is only helpful in an idle state to conserve power...why on earth would we want to lock it at half its speed?
