I'm using acpi and have ichist loaded. This program seems to be very
successful in setting the sysctl variable that ichist uses. This is a
great step towards an add-on application for speedstepping, a good
temporary solution before (as I've heard it) moving this functionality
into the kernel. Hopefully ichist gets worked on soon so's it begins
to save a bit of the ol' battery life. It would be nice to finally
get more than the 3 - 4 hours that I've been getting in fBSD.
