RE: [Xen-devel] Re: [Xen-ia64-devel] [PATCH 0/3] IA64: add cpufreq support

Hi Isaku,

I tried your updated patch, and xenpm works in my IPF box. the attached is the 
xenpm output.

>From you xenpm output, one possible reason is that the DBS (alias of Px)

- check BIOS to see if DBS is enabled.
- or try the native linux (e.g. RHEL5), to see if the cpufreq works.

Also, it will be helpful if you can attach the xen serial log. please add 
"loglvl=info" to elilo xen option, to make sure cpufreq information is printed.

Best Regards
