I'm pretty sure it's incorrect to add p4tcc and acpi_throttle for power
saving purpose.  I plan to add some flags in order to use only relevant
frequencies to this end, but IMHO that should be done at low-level
drivers.  On the other hand, it is usefull to keep the existing sysctl
freqs, but for cooling purpose only.
