That's not suprising at all to me, given that the entire LAPIC and
interrupt management happens in Xen and not in Dom0. Hence
P- and C-state management code is likely the only consumer of
this (always going to be bogus under Xen) data.

(In our kernels, I specifically removed all traces of these, as any
use of them can only have bad effects. In pv-ops this not being
an option, the only alternative appears to be to find and adjust
each one individually, now and forever.)
