CPU frequency changing doesn't work under Xen at the moment, and it's
pretty pointless for individual kernels to do this without understanding
what else is going on in the OTHER kernels that may be running on the
system - so it makes sense to disable it by "permanent" measure, until
someone gets round to figuring out how to make Xen itself handle CPU
frequency changing (perhaps with help from Dom0)...
