<snip all>

I've been running powerd for a while.  Been running it on an ASUS
B202.  It brought my freq down to 100mhz when I checked on it.
Stopping powerd brought the freq up to 1600, and restarting powerd
brought it back to 100mhz eventually.

You might need to load an ACPI module for your system.  Mine would be
acpi_asus.ko if I choose to run it.

I've never seen powerd to cause panics. I'm sure it's possible, but
I've never seen it.

Mark +1 for the success here on this side.
